I ALWAYS enjoyed his TV shows this time of year. Heck, some of you may have caught him live. God bless Bob Hope and all the troops! Here's a short vid. from those years. The closing song was always emotional.

i got to meet bob hope once.

what is now the pga senior tour, or the champions tour, started out as "the liberty mutual legends of golf" tournament at the onion creek golf club in austin way back in 1978, and it was a celebrity pro-am. my best friend and i attended two days of the inaugural event, and i got to introduce myself to hope, shake his hand, and he autographed my program, which i still have. we were practically kids. there were a lot of old-time celebrities there like hope, james garner, george gobel, and so on. i think sam snead won the tournmament that year.

bob hope was one of a kind.

A guy sent me a e-mail that said " remember when Regan was President, we had Bob Hope doing Christmas and Johnny Cash singing, now we got Obama, no cash and no hope"
