Superbowl Legend falls from grace

Max McGee, the unexpected hero of the first Super Bowl died Saturday after falling from the roof of his home, police confirmed. He was 75. McGee was blowing leaves off the roof when he fell, according to news reports. Efforts to resuscitate McGee were unsuccessful.

What an unfortunate way for a gridiron hero to die. Usually when I hear a story about an athlete dying that involves blowing and leaves, I assume the accident report involves driving drunk, a tree, and a road game bimbo wrapped around some wood.
