Los Angeles Rams

In his first two seasons with the Rams, Klein served as the backup tight end to veteran Billy Truax. While he appeared in all 14 games in his rookie season, he had only 2 pass receptions as he was primarily a blocker in the Rams' run oriented offense. However, he did catch a touchdown pass in the Rams 23-20 playoff loss in Minnesota to the Vikings. After the 1970 season, the Rams traded Truax to the Dallas Cowboys for wide receiver Lance Rentzel, and Klein took over the Rams' starting tight end position. Klein, an excellent blocker, also expanded his repertoire so that he averaged 21 receptions per season from 1971-76.

Playing in the Chargers' high powered passing attack led by hall of fame quarterback Dan Fouts, Klein caught 91 passes for 8 touchdowns from 1977-79. Klein was then replaced by future hall of fame tight end Kellen Winslow and retired after the 1979 season. [1]

Beer rating

Beer rating is assessing and evaluating beer using a point system. The process is similar to that used in beer judging competitions, such as those organised by the Beer Judge Certification Program (BJCP) in America, though the participants are consumers so it may be termed a score-rated recommendation system. The rating system may be a simple 5 marks, and may be organized by a beer store or pub chain such as Wetherspoon in the UK; or it may be more involved, such as the systems used by beer rating websites such as BeerAdvocate and RateBeer. In one study it is claimed that beer ratings can be generally considered to be informative and unbiased source of information.
