The king of all sports Rexes — ex-Chicago Bears QB Rex Grossman — finally joined the consecutive show list of “guys named Rex” who’ve been interviewed by Jim Rome on his syndicated radio show (heard here on AM-570).
Rome’s website (linked here) now has a list of those who’ve appeared along with links to the interviews.
For our own bookkeeping:
== Monday, March 2, No. 13: Rex Morgan, not the M.D. comic strip, but the former Boston Celtics player out of Jacksonville University (linked here), now the the head basketball coach of the nationally-ranked Arlington County Day in Jacksonville.
== Tuesday, March 3, No. 14: Rex Grossman (linked here).
== Wednesday, March 4, No. 15: Rex Hughes, former Pepperdine basketball standout, a USC assistant under Bob Boyd and head man at Kent State (’74-’78) who also had a short run heading the Sacramento Kings and San Antonio Spurs (linked here).
== Thursday, March 5, No. 16: Rex Kern, more famous as the quarterback for Ohio State’s football team from 1968-70, and Rose Bowl player of the game in ’69 in a win over USC (then losing the ’71 Rose Bowl game to Stanford) (linked here)
== Friday, March 6, No. 17: Rex Brown, aka “Rexx Rocker,” former bass player for the band Pantera, now with Down, and a big Dallas Cowboys fan who had to be bleeped at one point. (linked here and RexBrown.net).
