Very Sad News

The news that broke today that Len Dawson is in hospice care makes me very sad. 

Not only was Len a Hall of Fame Quarterback for the Chiefs, he was one of the first active players -- ever -- to do sports broadcasting. 

I met Len when he was sportscaster for KMBZ Radio in Kansas City and I did their weather. Even though I was a teenager, he was always a gentleman and encouraging to me. In the last couple of decades, I would run into him at KMBC TV and we would have a pleasant conversation. While I haven't been him recently, I considered him a friend. 

Best of luck, Len. You will be terribly missed.
