For alle Seinfeld fans der ute så må det vel være et must å signere under på kampanjen - SEINFELD ON DVD!!!!På hjemmesiden:
Og gi denne urlen til venner og kjente - og at du vil sette opp BANNER(den er ikke helt klar enda men vil komme) eller link til denne siden. Og så kan du følge med
på nyheter som kommer på denne siden fortløpende i fremtiden som kommer og forhåpentligvis vil det være tusenvis som skriver under slik at vi skal "presse"
Columbia Tristar til å lage DVD av hele Seinfeld - alle sesongene og kanskje litt til(deleted scenes,mislykkede scener som ikke ble tatt med osv). Og også
forhåpentligvis å sende et personlig brev om dette m/alle signeringer til Jerry Seinfeld himself! Takker!!!!!

Hej Birger! I thought that I was already in your guest book but I can't find the entry. I will bet that I was the first person to receive "Rockne" as a first name. My dad played football with him on the neghborhood teams in Chicago in the early years of the past century. I was born 20 January 1930 and Dad wrote to Knute Rockne about it. Rockne wrote back from Florida. I have a copy of the letter buried somewhere but I haven't seen it later. I know that there are about three other Rockne Johnsons in the USA but with different middle initials. In 1975 I discovered an active submarine vocano in the region of Samoa and named it Rockne Volcano. Now some busybodies are trying to find a new name for it as "Rockne" is regarded as "culturally insensitive". It's a funny thing because I had previously (1969) discovered and active submarine volcano in the Austral Islands region and called it "Macdonald Volcano" after a well known volcanologist. No one blinked at that! Rock

I have heard that early in his career at Notre Dame, Rockne as an assistant coach had an opportunity to become head football coach at the University of Kansas. True or false? If true, what are the details? Thank you.
