Tears

Another day, another childhood icon slipping away.

Alex Karras' kidneys are failing, and he has gone home to be with this family. This is truly sad news. As someone who grew up on the 1960s NFL, you'd have to go a long, long way to convince me No. 71 wasn't the greatest Detroit Lion ever.

Update: Karras died today at the age of 77.
