Gales Sayers - 77

The argument will never end.

Gales Sayers only 68 games, but had he a career as lengthy as most he may as well have proven to be the best

I was too young to know about him.  Brian's Song is about all I know of him and that he was also in Star Wars!! 

I was shocked to hear the news this morning also.

Not big physically, but huge when on the field, and a pretty good business man too.  One of the few top athletes to have a successful business career after pro ball.
