Re: R.I.P. Art Donovan

I met him at my friends' wedding a few years ago and he was a real character. Art owned a country club in Baltimore county where their wedding was held and he hung out in the bar area (which was an awesome shrine to him) drinking a couple of cans of Schiltz during the reception.
Most of the other groomsmen were born and raised in Baltimore so they were really excited when we got a big group picture with a Colts legend; I was just happy to meet one of the best guest stars ever to appear on The Adventures of Pete & Pete.

Re: R.I.P. Art Donovan

It just occured to me,I was wondering if he put his name on the lawsuit against the nfl about concussions? I dont remember reading about him having problems,but one of the articles I read said he played without a helmet?Was that a joke I wonder?

Re: R.I.P. Art Donovan

Loved to see him Letterman, he was one the best guests on the show.
Joe Gibbs- The best coach of all time, Lombardi trophy should be renamed Gibbs.

Art Monk- Art was like an OL playing WR, doing the dirty work and not getting the glory.

Darrell Green- Best DB ever.

Re: R.I.P. Art Donovan

Art was the original Tony Siragusa ... but much, much funnier. Met him once in Baltimore at some event about 20 years ago - all I really remember is that he was a really nice, genuine guy who made me laugh beer through my nose.

RIP Art.
Strap it up, hold onto the ball, and let’s go.
