Coach Halas thought George wouldn’t stick,
but Blanda could still pass and kick.
. For sixteen more years
. he made it quite clear
no mind did he pay to Time’s tick.
George Blanda passed away Monday at the age of 83. He played 26 seasons of pro football as a quarterback and kicker, retiring a month shy of his 49th birthday.
