Death League Update: Jack Kemp

May 13, 2009 | Comments (0) | by T.R.

One can easily compare Jack Kemp to Ted Turner, Chik-Fil-A and the Toyota Tundra: the name sounds familiar, but I'll be damned if I know anything worthwhile about them. Jack Kemp passed away two weeks ago at the age of 73. To honor such a dignified man, one must look at his accomplishments. I will list Jack Kemp facts below. Three of them are true and one is false. See how well you know Jack Kemp:

  1. Kemp was a vice presidential nominee on Bob Dole's ticket in 1996.
  2. Kemp was a professional quarterback in the NFL and AFL and led the Buffalo Bills to a title.
  3. Kemp was drafted by the Detroit Lions in 1957, but was cut before the season started.
  4. Kemp was a Time Magazine "Future Leader" in 1974.

What is your answer friend?

Actually, the answer is that there is no answer. All four of those items are true. And looking at number three, it's nice to see that some things never change.

Six points are awarded to Daft Funk, who insists that he will soon make his triumphant return to TMS.
