I don't recall him in his rookie season, but I do remember seeing him play a couple years later. What a gracious man. Amazing talent, back in the day, despite having only played a handful of years. "Poetry in motion."
A documentary tribute to Gale Sayers @ youtube:
Yes, a very good man his playing career was short but amazing
One of Chicago’s best.
A lot of my Cavalry buddies... Hand Salute.
Likewise for our soldiers!
RIP Mac Davis
RIP Helen Reddy
Enjoyed her music, now and then, during the '70s and '80s. A little sappy, as much of the singer/songwriter stuff could be during that era, but she had a great voice. A lot of classics in the genre were hers.
Rest in peace.
Helen Reddy -- the 1987 compilation album, Greatest Hits:
and her 1971 debut album, I Don't Know How To Love Him:
Wasn't aware of his passing.
His tunes were on the radio all through the '60s and '70s. Listened to a lot of his stuff, back in the day.
Mac Davis -- his 1972 album, Baby Don't Get Hooked On Me:
Perhaps the most intimidating pitcher of the 60s, Bob Gibson has died at 84 of pancreatic cancer. His 1968 season will go down as one of the greatest of the modern era with an unbelievable 1.12 era. Never scared to back a batter off of the plate with a 95 mph fastball. He was such a good athlete that he played a year for the Harlem Globetrotters before becoming a major league ballplayer.
Bill White was his roommate for years until he was traded to the Phillies. The first time he faced Gibson after the trade Gibson hit him. White said he was expecting it.
Cardinal nation mourns the passing of a great one. R.I.P. #45
^ I remember Gibson in the late-'60s. Can't recall the '68 season specifically, but I do remember what a "terror" he was to batters.

Eddie Van Halen at 65.
Rock on in Peace.
One of the best guitar riffs in history.
Just heard this on the news,,,
Eddie Van Halen passed at the age of 65,,,
I was never a fan of his,,,
But a lot of hard-rockers will be bawlin' in their beers tonight.
Dang it, another one.
Johnny Nash, singer / songwriter.
I can see clearly now the rain is gone.
Van Halen dead at 65 from cancer.
A lot of his fans as well. He was part of the reason I learned to play, and I have always enjoyed playing in his style.
The man has been battling cancer, for the last 20 years, even sent back on tour, in 2007. Chadwick Bosman, who played Black Panther, in the MCU, passed about a month ago, as well. Both after years of fighting cancer. Bosman made 4 movies, in action and comic genres, while undergoing treatment for colon cancer.
Like these two men, or not, you have to respect just how tough they both had to be, to keep it private, and leave a legacy for their fans, and raise the money their families will need, with them gone.
We should all be so blessed, to leave a mark on our world. May they find eternal peace.
The Chairman of the Board, Yankee's great Whitey Ford at 91.
Just noticed that, in the news.
Whitey Ford, 91, pitcher who epitomized mighty Yankees, dies @ Associated Press, 10/9/20.
Boy, but is 2020 turning into a "grand slam" type of year for losses, or what? Dang.
