Played 12 years, mostly for the Colts, winning 2 Super Bowls. Old-school, WWII vet and funny as hell. I still remember the Miller Lite commercials and NFL interviews. 88 years of age; God speed Art. They don't make many like that guy anymore. Great Carson interview here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7HDRLnoAY9E
OT: RIP Art Donovan
"In my day, we didn't have cruciate ligaments!"
great stories on Letterman as a regular guest.
The Carson interview is definitely worth a look:
Donovan was on Letterman in 1986 with a longer and arguably ever funnier interview here. Point being, the man's recollections of his football days are incredibly entertaining.
"The only weights we lifted were cans of Schlitz."
So funny and the great stories about Bobby Layne. Cheating in college was great and playing on a field of elephant poop:). May heaven be full of cans of Spam and cold cuts Art. A true American story teller.
