Became a fan of the Chicago Bears and Rick at age 5; something stuck out about him on that 1958 football card. Growing up in Maryland, my mom and dad took me to the Baltimore Colts-Bears game in November 1962 for my 9th birthday. The Bears demolished the Colts 57-0, Rick scored a touchdown. My mom sent him a letter that evening, describing how he made my birthday special. Still a Bears fan! God must have needed a new fullback. Rest in peace!
