Sweetness

Walter Payton is probably best known as the world greatest running back. I saw him play at the one Chicago Bear's game I went to way back when. After he passed away from cancer a few years ago, his wife established a foundation in his name to benefit underprivileged kids.

I had no idea he was a collector of sporting goods of the other kind. On Sunday (today, now), his foundation will be auctioning off his collection of firearms, knives, bows & archery equipment and ammunition, at the Morris Illinois Municipal Airport.
