By legendary Hall of Famer, Arthur J. Donovan, Jr. The only weight he ever lifted was a beer can. The only vegetable he ate was the gourmet potato (aka "French fries"). But back in the glory days of football, before prime time, big money, and Astroturf, Fatso was one of the all-time greats.

Being from Baltimore and growing up in the 60's, this book brought back many memories of when the players were out in the community. Every boy idealized these men that were the Baltimore Colts: Johny Unitas, Artie Donovan, Tom Matte, Gino Marchetti, Alan Dante "The Horse" Ameche, Lenny Moore, ...

All the memories of the plays that we re-enacted as children in our backyard came rushing forward as I sat reading, hanging on every word of this book. Thank you Artie for all you did for our city, our community and the lives of youngsters growing up in Baltimore!

Thank you Artie for writing this book!!!
