Charlottesville native and football legend Roosevelt Brown died yesterday at his New Jersey home, apparently suffering a heart attack. Brown played for the Giants for 12 years, contributing to their spectacular success in the late 50s and early 60s. His offensive line play earned him a spot in the Hall of Fame. Brown was 71 years old.

i thought we can’t talk about sports in here. It is sad hearing a local legend pass.

There’s no rule against it. :) I just don’t follow college sports, so I can’t really write about local sports. I tried a few stories a few years ago, when I first started the site, but nobody cared, so I stopped.
I don’t want to nitpick, really I don’t, but he’s a football (American) player, not a football (soccer) player. It’s a bit jarring to see the general-purpose sports icon picture of a soccer ball next to his name…
