R.I.P. Grizzly Smith, 1932-2010

Sadly, I just read of the passing of one of my all-time favorites, Grizzly Smith. Born Aurelian Smith in Whitesboro, Texas, Smith was one-half of one of the most beloved tag teams of all time, the Kentuckians, along with Luke Brown. The father of Jake "The Snake" Roberts, Sam Houston, and "Rocking" Robin, Smith had a long career in professional wrestling. My last wrestling memories of him are as the matchmaker for "Cowboy" Bill Watts' Mid-South Wrestling. Wanted to share a couple of my favorite pictures. R.I.P. Griz.
