    95 years old, had a pretty good run.
    Marv is 88, so not too far behind.
    4 Superbowl losses in a row would have probably killed me.

    Sad news, good man. One less vote for the Bills and Chargers to remain in their home towns.

    I think Barron Hilton is alive and one of the original AFL team owners. Wilson took a mighty big gamble back then, jumping to the AFL surely signed his no return to the NFL if things didn't work out. The rest is history.

    You're right - Barron Hilton is still kicking.

    Will this now spell the end of the Flutie Curse?

    I think he passed the curse on to Wade Phillips.
    Only a flake would believe the curse isn't still alive...

    To bad for Bolt fans that Barron's old man made him leave pro football in order to inherit the family fortune. He had a very good run in the six years he owned the team and pretty much everything he touched turned to gold.
