Now taking the field for the Celestial Bears, Brian Piccolo and Gale Sayers. It is good to think that they are united once again, each in possession of his full health. RIP, Gale Sayers.

77 is younger than I would have thought he was, which reminds me how unfortunately short his career was and how young he was when he had to retire.

I am Third was one of the first "sports" books I read as a kid. RIP one of the all time greats, both on and off the field.
