AS SEEN IN:
'The Odd Couple'
"Felix's First Commercial"
Felix gets his first TV commercial assignment, but after Oscar gets football player Deacon Jones for the ad, he insists on being in the ad as well. (tv.com)
Jones specialized in quarterback "sacks", a term which he coined. Nicknamed the "The Secretary of Defense", Jones is considered one of the greatest defensive players ever. Without Jones, defense as we know it would be different. The Los Angeles Times called Jones "Most Valuable Ram of All Time," and former Redskins head coach George Allen called him the "Greatest Defensive End of Modern Football".
Good night and may God bless.....
