Remembering Art Donovan

Updated: Monday, August 5 2013, 04:31 PM EDT

Art Donovan was a hall of famer who helped the Baltimore Colts win two championships in the 1950s. After he hung up his cleats he stayed in town to run the Valley Country Club.

Baltimore loved Art, and he loved Baltimore. In his autobiography, titled "Fatso," Donovan wrote about the early days of the NFL. He kept things in perspective when Mayflower vans took the Colts away to Indianapolis in 1984. While he thought the move was wrong, he took issue with those who called it a tragedy.

Donovan's special personality led to frequent appearances on late night talk shows and he kept people laughing at various appearances. He lived life to the fullest and when he talked about it several years ago, he said he had no regrets.

"It's been a great ride," Donovan said. "I did it all as far as I could go and that was it." 

Donovan passed away on Sunday August 4, aged 88.
