We'll miss you Jackie!

Suddenly the streak ending, no longer seems important. I'll treasure the fact that I got to see "old Spaghetti Legs" play. When we played in the backyard as kids, I was always Jackie Parker, but then so were the rest of the kids. We didn't have X-box then, we played the part outside. He was larger than life and had a flare for the dramatic.

There will never be another.

The Eskimo family is officially in mourning.

A great Eskimo to be sure. Its always sad when the legends of a great game leave us.

A sad day, for sure. My mom told me the news. Heartfelt condolences to the family.

Sad day for football. Parker was a coach for the Lions as well as a great player for the Eskies.

He will be missed by all!
