A few Sammy Baugh anecdotes

Slinging Sammy Baugh, the last surviving member of the original NFL Hall of Fame before he died the other day at 94, stirred up some memories in people who crossed paths with him.

Berry Tramel, sports columnist for the Oklahoma City daily, talked to a couple of them who knew Baugh after his playing days.

One played for Baugh when the famed quarterback was an assistant coach at Oklahoma State; another interviewed Baugh who happened to mention he had some visitors a few days earlier including a real tall fellow named Peyton something-or-other -- Peyton Manning.
