    Willie Brown, R.I.P.

    NFL Hall of Famer and Oakland Raider great Willie Brown has reportedly passed away at age 78. One of the greatest defensive backs of all time and creator of the "bump and run" tactic, Brown is perhaps best remembered for his 75 yard interception return for a TD in the Raiders 1977 Super Bowl victory over the Vikings. Iconic film footage of the play depicts him appearing to run towards an end zone camera while an announcer shouts "Old man Willie!" R.I.P.
    "Hey...Dad. Wanna Have A Catch?" Kevin Costner in "Field Of Dreams."
