I heard on a Dallas station I stream yest that ex UH great and Cowboy Robert Newhouse suffered a stroke while driving a month or so ago.

The report said he had been hospitalized since and is unable to use his left side but will be released this month.

Here's hoping he fully recovers.

Yes definitely. I always liked him. I remember when I saw him play thinking he had the biggest legs I'd ever seen on anybody. They were like tree trunks!

Best wishes to him. Yup he had the biggest legs around and he kept them churning. He was the fullback version of Earl Campbell.

I am not a doctor but the radio interview said Robert said he was in no pain and his speech was fine and all that but that he could not use his left side at all. So that is horrible in and of itself.

So he's going to be alright?

Yea. Too soon. In fact totally inappropriate to joke about anytime. But that's just me.

Honestly, I didn't even get the joke. I'm feeling kinda slow here.
