There’s a new book out about one of my childhood idols, Walter Payton. The book describes his addiction to pain killers (which may explain why he never missed a game due to injury), his infidelity, and his depression. Since he died of a very rare liver disease, I always wondered if it was partly due to some kind of supplement. Who knows, maybe the massive amount of painkillers was a contributing factor.
I’m interested to see what the reaction is going to be in this book.
I liked the man so much, I always considered using the name Walter if I ever had a son. Walter was my father’s name, my grandfather’s name, my middle name, and there’s been several great Walts or Walters like Cronkite, Disney, and Dallas Cowboy great Walt Garrison.
As a teen I remember going to pick up a friend and actually having to get out of the car and ring the doorbell to let them know I was there. I’m sure teens don’t do that today, all they have to do is use the cell phone.
