One day he was waxing eloquent about his "sports career" in a group I was part of and I asked him about the scar, dropped my aunt's name and his mouth continued to move but no sound came out.

In Vancouver we used to have a trifecta -

Neil Macrae
John McKeachie
Dave Pratt

Pomposity and idiocy all in neat little packages.
He had this shtick where, after a big game, he would get the coach of the Canucks or the Lions on the phone right before the late night sportscast would start. Then as soon as he was on camera, he'd point at the phone & say "I'm talking to the boss!"
