True to the end

Standard

The city of Buffalo and Bills fans across the nation are mourning the loss of legendary Bills running back Cookie Ghilchrist who lost his battle with cancer.

Ghilcrest was the same till the very end.

I actually had one conversation with Ghilchrist, who I was put in touch with by a family member. At first glance I though Ghilchrist was a bitter old man, especially when we talked about Bills owner Ralph Wilson.

However, after reading Mark Gaughan’s article on Ghilchrist in the Buffalo News that who Ghilchrist was a brutally honest person who called it for what the situation was no matter who it offended.

In the end, it is sad that Bills fans won’t be able to pay tribute to a legend in person one last time and there is only one person to blame for that, and we all know who that is.
