Football icon John Madden has passed away. The man went to more Super Bowls than Tom Brady (1 as coach and 11 as broadcaster) and had the best selling sports video game of all-time named after him.
Here's an interesting interview from earlier this year on what Madden thought about the video game and how he watched NFL games once he stopped broadcasting.
Here's an excellent SI profile of Madden from almost 40-years ago. The article really brought you the essence of the man. The story of his kindness to Darryl Stingley is one of the first things I thought of when I saw the news of his passing.
John Madden was one of a kind. There will never be another.
