    RIP Gale Sayers

    I only know him from the movie, Brian's Song, but that is enough for me to like him. Condolences to his friends and family.

    Ditto. I read his autobiography ("I Am Third") and the book version of the movie (which, I believe, predated the movie, though I'm being too lazy to look it up). Nice guy.

    I read his autobiography, too. Maybe there were fewer books available in those days, or maybe that was during my football fan days. I'm sure he was a lovely person.

    Rock Chalk Jayhawk, Mr. Sayers. Rest in Peace.
