    RIP,


    3rd grade class mates at Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Daly City, a suburb of SF; they then went their separate ways and re-united as teammates on the Oregon football team.​

    What? I thought this guy RIP in the 90s. I didn't know he was still alive. RIP I guess.

    Wow... that is very cool. I didn't know he was from Daly City... I was raised in next-door South San Francisco.

    For all we know, he probably has been dead for a long time. o_O

    It was always cool to me that he refused to fly.

    I attended his Hall of Fame induction (if you ever have the chance to attend an induction ceremony in Canton, GO). As much as I hate the Raiders, I always appreciated Madden. When "Coached a Team to a Super Bowl Win" is, at best, third on your list of what you're known for; you've lived a pretty full life.

    RIP, John.

    It was insane that it took the "Veterans Committee" to vote him into the HOF.

    You could tell the man had a big heart. He lived a pretty remarkable life too!
