Mandich Update

Earlier this season, Jim "Mad Dog" Mandich -- the most famous guy with my last name -- was posthumously inducted into the Dolphin Honor Roll at Miami's Joe Robbie Stadium Pro Player Park Pro Player Stadium Dolphins Stadium Dolphin Stadium Land Shark Stadium Sun Life Stadium. From the Miami Herald comes this article, plus photos and a video. Here he is in action against Pittsburgh...

I first blogged about him in 2008, and again last May when he died. Here's another shot, hauling in a pass against New England...

Much less famous is Dan Mandich, who I once briefly mentioned here...

He played in 111 NHL games, all for the Minnesota North Stars, between 1982 and 1986. One of his game-worn jerseys was recently up for auction...

Here he flattens Calgary's Lanny McDonald...

Finally, video of him taking out Detroit's Greg Stefan.
