Anniversary of Brian Piccolo's Death

via www.sportsfaithinternational.com

"I love Brian Piccolo, and I'd like all of you to love him. When you hit your knees to pray tonight, please ask God to love him, too."   Those were the words of Gale Sayers the month before Piccolo died of cancer. 

Today marks the 40th anniversary of his death.

Mr. Piccolo, thank you for your contributions to our storied franchise.  We wish you could have been a part of our lives for a longer period of time, but we certainly cherish the time you were here.
