Frank Gifford Went Down For The Eternal Count Today

Frank Gifford passed away today at age 84. One week shy of his 85th birthday.

The former football player spent his entire 13-year NFL career with the New York Giants before turning to broadcasting on television.

His widow Kathie Lee Gifford announced in a statement that “We rejoice in the extraordinary life he was privileged to live, and we feel grateful and blessed to have been loved by such an amazing human being.”

Chuck Bednarik, his tackler in the 1960 championship game, died last March. Maybe they’ll simply play two-hand touch up in heaven.
