Thanks for that great story, Michael Citro! When I was a Lantern reporter, for a feature story I went with a group of Fellowship of Christian Athletes on a visit to Children's Hospital, maybe 1979. Donley, Schlicter, Cal Murray, a bunch of other football players and guys from other sports were there. Donley was so funny, and while a lot of the guys weren't quite sure what to say or do with the kids, Donley just jumped right in and lifted everybody's spirits. I was very impressed.
I got a kick out of his mention of Doug Mackie. DM was my apartment neighbor one summer and was a giant teddy bear with a heart of gold.
