Great article sent in by frequent commenter, and close relative, Ace. The author, who has written biographies of Pete Maravich and Joe Namath, clearly knows what he writing about.
The article reminds me to offer my first “bleg,” which I understand to be a request for help that you post on your blog. I am working on an article for a major daily newspaper making the argument that Brett Favre is not only modern sports true Iron Man, but the greatest quarterback of all time. If you have points that should be included in such a piece, please post them in the comments or send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks.
