Farewell, Franco Harris

This Friday is the 50th anniversary of the play forever known as the Immaculate Reception. This Saturday night the Raiders and the Steelers play In Pittsburgh. Every living legend of that 1972 game was supposed to be in attendance.
In a cruel twist of fate, The hero of the game Franco Harris will not be there. He died today.
I guess God needed Franco to join him at the head football table this weekend with Kenny Stabler. John Madden, Al Davis, Art
Rooney and Chuck Noll are sharing a special turducken.
Although I bleed silver and black, I offer heartfelt condolences to the black and gold members of Franco’s Italian Army. NFL flags must be flown at half staff today.
As Peyton Manning said, God bless you all, and God bless football.
