Ron Cook and Jayne Mansfield

There must be a story here...  we will leave it to your imagination for now - but soon the complete story will be printed here, as soon as someone, who knows all the facts, writes it....  Just enjoy the video.   It's too bad that the sound track is missing.  It is part of Ron Cook's past. 

...ask and ye shall receive...

"The Big Kiss"

In 1957, my senior year for football, Ohio State won the Big 10 and National Championships. As Big 10 champs, we played in the 1958 Rose Bowl game against 

The PAC 8 (now PAC 10) champions, the Oregon Ducks.

Several days before the game, the Rose Bowl Committee hosted a dinner for the team at the Biltmore Hotel in LA. The ballroom was packed with OSU fans, 

alumni, the band, and cheerleaders. After the dinner a variety show was held with Bob Hope as Master of Ceremonies. Bob had just returned from an USO trip 

and had with him Miss Jayne Mansfield.

Before the show Bob Hope talked to Coach Woody Hayes about having one of the players on stage to receive a kiss from Jayne. For whatever reason, Coach 

Hayes selected me to go on stage.

During the show Bob Hope called me up on stage. After some witty remarks, Bob said he had a special gift for me and he said "Here she is Miss Jayne 

Mansfield". She came walking out in a tight dress, black hat and high black heels. The crowd went wild. After Bob introduced us he left the stage to Jane and me.

After a few pleasant words, Jayne said "You know Ron, they say animals are raised and humans are reared". I said OK. And then she said "Are you ready". I 

said "Anytime you are". She then closed her eyes and puckered up. I thought to my self, this is only going to happen one time. So I grabbed her like I was going 

in on a tackling dummy and put a big kiss on her. I wasn't about to let go. Finally, she wiggled lose and with her big wide eyes turned to the microphone and said 

"I can see you were raised". Needless to say the crowd really went wild and I was the envy of all the guys on the team.

One of the assistant coaches filmed the show on 16 mm film. Several years later I was able to make a copy of the film showing the big kiss, where we stayed the 

night before the game, and the field goal that eventually won the game for us, 10-7.  I was able to convert the 16 mm film to a video and then to a DVD.
