Remembering Joe Delaney
 
30 years ago today, Joe Delaney gave his life while attempting to save three drowning kids. The Chiefs made a 22 minute video in his honor and it's worth a watch no matter what team you root for.

I just turned 30 today. Crazy.

If somebody ever writes the NFL equivalent of Bill Simmons' Book of Basketball, I hope Delaney gets his own chapter.

One of the old ones here who kinda remembers him dying. Already was collecting football cards back then as a little punk, and I loved Joe.
Remember hearing the news, being very sad.

He went to HS about 15 minutes from where I live and attended my alma mater, Northwestern State University.
