Up Chuck

His idol, without any flaw
the boy was in awe of his paw
Akin to a God
with statuesque bod
The biggest the West ever saw

Top: Chuck Connors and Johnny Crawford in a
publicity photo for The Rifleman. Above: Connors is credited to be the first professional basketball player to break a backboard when he played for the Boston Celtics in 1946. He later switched to baseball and played first base for the Chicago Cubs in 1951.
The Rifleman Week is out of ammo. The top photo, as well as many others used earlier this week were found at the McCain Ranch episode guide.
