You probably know Alex Karras as the 'dad' or father figure on Webster.  Prior to that he did a bunch of movies but was probably best known as "Mongo" in the Mel Brooks classic "Blazing Saddles".  Now I'm sure he had more poignant moments and more dramatic moments on film.  Still, I think this one scene stops the remote control every time you pass by the television.  Click though and share :20 seconds in honor of Alex Karras.


Alex Karras lived to the ripe old age of 77.  77 may not seem like much, but ex-NFL's rarely get old.  It's sad, and something people don't want to think about, but it's true.  Anyways, this is the moment a lot of people 'met' Alex Karras in the movies and it's still as funny today as it was back them. Here's Alex Karras in "Blazing Saddles".
