Remembering Gayle Sayers And The 1971 Made For TV Movie "Brian's Song"


We lost legendary Chicago Bears running back Gale Sayers this week after a battle with dementia. He was 77. His friendship with teammate Brian Piccolo, who died of cancer at 26, was made into the hit TV movie "Brian's Song". I remember watching that movie as a little kid back in 1971. If you've never seen it, you should. Just watching the trailer made me well up a bit. RIP Gale. - Sally
