    A big loss for Baltimore - and even bigger loss for NFL films. Art Donovan HAS to go down as the most colorful commentator on those historical films done by NFL Films. I hope they pull out some of the classics on NFL Network this week. And his autobiography is a great read, on football in his era which went form the old to a more modern NFL, and his life.
     
    Great (funny) quotes:
     
    I'm a light eater - when it's light out, I eat.
     
    ´╗┐We didn't have steriods. If I wanted to get pumped up, I drank a case of beer.

      I loved listening to him and he had some of the best stories ever!  Sad to see him go.  RIP

        He thought Schlitz, Hamburgers and hotdogs was the perfect diet.
