I would stop anything I was doing to listen to Alex and Art Donavan.

Never could watch him on Webster, it was like he took the Merlin Olsen route on TV.

Alex will be missed.
One of the truly funny men in the NFL. He only went to 3 Pro Bowls but he was much better than that. Never really got his due as a player because of playing in Detroit. Some of those Detroit defensive teams in the early - mid 60s were very good. I was fortunate to see him play against Baltimore in 1967 in my first NFL game. A 17 -17 tie where Unitas was injured. He missed a whole season with Hornung for gambling.
