I am heartsick about former Dallas Cowboy Tony Dorsett's diagnosis. I covered
him for many years, and always found him cordial. When he spent a late-career
stint at Denver, I was assigned to cover him at the Broncos' training camp in
Greeley, Colo. He was hospitalized in Denver with an injury, and I was driving
back and forth like maniac. When I caught up with him, he was on crutches in a
rock garden near the training facilities. He not only told me his story, but
probably saved my job for another day.
