UD Hangs With the NFL.

Dick Cunningham and UD are like that. They met on a Wind and Wine Sunset Cruise, and hit it off right away, both of them able to talk endlessly about university and professional football.

Dick shares UD‘s disgust with what football’s become. “My day… Things were much better… I was playing with Jack Kemp…”

“Also O.J. Simpson, hon,” said his wife.

“He was nice then.”

As you already know if you clicked on his name and checked his Wikipedia page, Dick was a linebacker with the Buffalo Bills and other teams. Dick wears an enormous Bills ring on his finger, and the right sleeve of his shirt says Buffalo Bills Alumni Weekend.

We got a terrific sunset — clear golden orb squashing itself down into the water like an orange being pressed — and what with the wine and gentle wind and holiday mood all around, this was an insanely congenial outing. Dick even seemed to enjoy it when I told him his theory about the decline of football (something about chemicals in the American food supply) was full of shit.
