“No whining. No complaining. No excuses.”– This is his motto.

    Gee, if sports fans were to follow Norm’s motto most of them wouldn’t have anything to say.

    Just sayin

    John Wooden’s two sets of three:

    Never lie, never cheat, never steal.
    Don’t whine, don’t complain, don’t make excuses.

    Or that it’s a typo on Sporting News, seeing as how he got married at 22 instead of 12…


    Norm was joking. Do the math. Born in 1946 and married for 40 years equals married at 22.

    Norm is the Man. Scent of a Woman, the Dodgers, BJ Penn, and a great motto that we could all benefit from living by. We’re lucky to have him.

    Back in April, the Easy Reader, a local South Bay paper, ran a story on him that included some background and his personal interests.
