Re: RIP Vince Promuto

Mr Promuto was a class act, a gentleman, so easygoing and generous with his time and shared a few Redskins stories, a few of Vince Lombardi as his head coach.
I didnít realize I was going to meet him that day, and coming to the bar after work for happy hour I didnít have any Redskins paraphernalia on me. I hauled ass home and back and just caught Vince after he paid his bar bill and was saying his goodbyes. I sheepishly asked him to sign my hat, and he graciously did so. A week later my buddy brought me an autographed card Vince had mailed him and asked him to give to me. What a guy.

Rest In Peace, sir.
Fantastic story. Thanks for sharing that.
