I’ve worked with former Bear Gale Sayers on several charity events over the years and can vouch for what a great human being he is.
That’s why this news in specially sad for me.
The Chicago Tribune is reporting that Gale Sayers is battling dementia.
Sayers is just 73 years old and his family thinks that his years playing football may have had something to do with it.
According to the report, his family is taking care of him.
I wish him well, especially because he’s always been so nice to me over the years!
