We talked a little bit about Chiefs great Joe Delaney a couple of weeks ago when we were discussing Leonard Pope’s heroic actions to save a boy from drowning at a pool party. Thankfully, Pope was able to save the child without anyone getting hurt.
Unfortunately, that was not the case when Joe Delaney drove into a pond to try to save three children from drowning 28 years ago today.
We post about Joe every year on this day and we do it to honor him and the sacrifice he made in a heroic attempt to help others. As such, we will have only one article in today’s Morning Fix. It is a piece written by Sports Illustrated back in 1983. It is a yearly must read. Read it for Joe.
