I can remember a big function I went to down in Bryan/College Station, Texas....home of Texas A&M University (Aggies) This was years ago. One of the alumini and a guest at the function was "Red" Cashion who also happened to be an NFL referee. Do any of you remember? He used to say demonstratively....."First Down!" He had just retired from being a head referee in the NFL. And I met him and asked him why?....when he clearly had the expertise to continue. He said, " I wanted to leave the game on my own terms and ON TOP. I didn't want any NFL official coming to me and saying "Red you are too old...and can't do it anymore" So I said "It does seem like quite a challenge though since the PRO game is SO FAST!" He said, "Jerry you would not believe"
Anyway....somewhere in my things I have an NFL football that is signed: "To my good friend Jerry----signed "Red (first down!) Cashion" (yes he did sign it that way!
