Brian's Swan Song

God I love that man

Brian's Swan Song

There is a scene in my all-time favorite sports movie where Billy Dee Williams stands at the podium, fondles an award and says (with tears in his eyes)  “I love Brian Piccolo.”

I can’t see that movie without breaking down into a useless puddle of mush.  Neither can my uncle, so I know it’s not a stupid girl thing.

Today, with news of  a  retirement, I’m reminded of that scene.

Come home, B-Dawk. Retire as an Eagle.  Forget those idiots in the front office.

Because you’re the Brian we in Philly will always love.
