Re: NFL Thread: Week 1 - Glorious
Yeah my family called & told me about that earlier today. I've actually met the guy 5 times while living in Baltimore & I can say that the guy was very personable. Some people who reach that status tend to shy away, be in a rush to get away from the fans but Art was a legit nice guy, actually took the time to ask me some questions about the team, how long I'd been a fan. Still one of the funniest things I can remember considering how dignified the guy was:
"Ya know what, son? I hate the goddamn Steelers, it's a feeling in the pit of my gut, it's not a choice."
Guy's done so much for the League & the NFL just lost one of the last remnants of a special era. THIS is the man resonsible for representing the owners & getting the NFL slots on television for Sundays & MNF.
