Joe Delaney. The ultimate example of selflessness.

Recommended Posts

RIP Joe Delaney, who passed on this day, June 29, 1983 while trying to save 3 kids from drowning, even though he could not swim.   I was 12 years old and aware of how he had burst on the NFL scene as a rookie and a small town guy.  It did not make sense to me how he died.  In a way, it still doesn't; but that's what BAMFs do in life.

RIP Joe Delaney.  A true American Hero in every sense of the word.

 

as for the early 80's, holy cow the AFC was so much fun in that era.

What kind of fucked up world is this where men like Joe die young but posters on this site get to live long, full lives.

Thanks Ice. RIP to a brave and fantastic man.
