The Racehorse

Lamar "Racehorse" Davis died Saturday at the age of 86. A member of the 1942 National Title team, I believe he still holds the school record for average gain per reception in a season.

He was a wide receiver before there really were wide receivers. From the Georgia Sports Information Department:
Former University of Georgia football star Lamar “Racehorse” Davis died Saturday, Feb. 23, at his home on St. Simons Island, Ga. He was 86.

He played wide receiver for the Bulldogs from 1940-42 and was a member of the 1942 SEC and national championship team. Davis was inducted into the State of Georgia Sports Hall of Fame in 1990. He is widely known for catching the 65-yard yard TD pass from Frank Sinkwich to beat Auburn 7-0 in 1941 as the final horn went off while the ball was in the air.

This is the AP coverage of that play, as printed in The Macon Telegraph on Nov. 2, 1941:
Georgia seemed not to have a ghost of a chance, but the ghost walked in Memorial Stadium before 17,000 customers. With three seconds to play the redoubtable Frankie Sinkwich tossed a sensational touchdown pass for a 7-0 victory over stubborn Auburn.

On the receiving end of the winning heave was Lamar [Race Horse] Davis who took in the 40-yard heave at at Auburn's 25 and scampared on across the goal even after the final whistley blew to bring victory to an out-played Georgia squad.

Auburn needs beating in the afterlife, too.

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
