Read this morning that Gale Sayers (age 73) has dementia. Sorry to hear this news. Thought back on the very emotional movie "Brian"s Song" Great movie about Brian Piccolo.

A few Sayers highlights

That is sad. Gale would be a DB prospect these days at 6', 198. The "Kansas Comet."

Saw  him against  LA  Rams at Coliseum  in his last yr--71,72?   

Before he got hurt  he was  as good a broken field runner  as I have seen.    Cry Cry :'(Manhasset  Jim  Brown the best runner-period.

It wouldn't  be fair but  which 49er  tore up  his knee?  I played softball  with him--Kermit  Alexander--LA  guy-UCLA  & 49er. 

Kermit was  the fastest  runner I ever saw on a softball field. Grin Grin Grin
