White Shadow memories: #1

March 24, 2016

In tribute to the late, great Ken Howard, and his fictional counterpart Ken Reeves, I’m spending the day counting down my ten favorite White Shadow memories (previous memories: 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2).

1. The guys go golfing.
This one eventually got into a serious issue—racism, specifically the racism of a country club attempting to get the coach to join—but up to that point the show was pure pleasure, featuring the coach and my three most favorite players just goofing around. This is why I watched the show, to hang out with these characters. The scene I remember the most is in the clip below and contains Thorpe’s explanation of the difference between the course at hand and “the course I usually play”—my favorite line in the history of television.

  1. Never saw it–but it sounds like a pretty culturally significant program. Hopefully I’ll catch some old episodes soon.
    Thanks for sharing.


  2. One of my favorite eps too. They’re being served lunch in the club and the server tells them they’re having vichyssoise when Salami backs away: “Vicious Sauce??!!”


  3. Thanks Josh, I too Followed this Show Religiously. It was Great. Go Carver.
