When Chuck Muncie was drafted by the Saints in 1976 I thought to myself "Why can't the Chargers get a player like Chuck".
Four years later that dream came true and Chuck came to San Diego.
It was a great time.
Chuck was a "Football Monster".
When he left San Diego for obvious reasons it was a sad day for many. Years later I had the great pleasure to meet Chuck face to face and I told him that I had been angry at him for many years, his response was "So have I".
Chuck could have been the best there ever was. We stayed in contact thru the years that followed. I saw the great work he continued to do "This was a great Man"
My wife and I were fortunate to accompany Chuck to the Superbowl in Miami between the 49er's and the Chargers. The outcome of that game had no impact on the ammount of fun we had that week hanging out with Chuck as far as I'm concerned Chuck was the best there ever was.
I will miss you greatly and I will hold on to this painting and autographed Jersey and share this story about this Great Man Until I get to meet with Chuck and my boy "Jo-Jo" on that great football field in the sky.
Love you Chuck, see you then.
