Stories

I remember how everyone I knew loved to "hate" Howard. It was the thing to do for some reason. In 1981 I flew on a cross-country flight where he was a passenger. He spent much of the flight walking around first class schmoozing with the passengers, and especially the stewardesses. I remember jokingly thinking to myself that if the plane went down, well, at least I'd be taking Howard Cosell with me.

I remember my father-in-law stopping a fight and Howard not knowing what was going on. Televised no less. Thought Dad had lost his job for sure!
