Peter Richmond remembers Oakland Raiders owner Al Davis - Grantland
Before I could even ask him a question, he started to read from a copy of that Madden induction speech, because he wanted me to know from the start that it was Madden, the man whose winning percentage beat Lombardi's, who should get all the credit. But within a second or two, he realized this was a stupid thing to do, and he slid the speech over to me, so I could read it myself later.
Then he said, "What I was trying to say in the speech is that time never stops for the great ones. That's what I was trying to say."
