The Boz! I was 8 when I went over to Brother Fuzzball’s house for Christmas and saw this poster hanging on the back of his bedroom door. He and Brother Raider, both bachelors in their early 20’s working construction, lived together in a mint colored rambler that overlooked Penn Cove. I loved going to their house because they were always silly (an 8 year-old doesn’t realize it has something to do with the Coors Light they constantly had in their hand) and doing fun stuff like blowing up oranges with M-80s. I distinctively remember this poster of Seahawk linebacker Brian Bosworth and imagining how nice it’d be to be Dorothy.
The Boz only played two seasons (’87-’89) before injuring himself, but he was more known for his boisterous personality. A little fun fact about him was that before the first game of the season, versus the Denver Broncos, he trash talked Denver quarterback John Elway. 10,000 Denver fans wore $15 T-shirts reading “BAN THE BOZ.” Little did they know that Bosworth’s company manufactured the shirts. What a businessman!
