Happy Birthday 89th Rosey Grier
Rosey has lived an incredible life, playing with the #Giants and #Rams
He was a great player, and an even better human.
After he got injured in ‘68 he travelled with Robert Kennedy. #HappyBirthdayRosey
Rosey was at the Ambassador hotel when Kennedy was shot.
He tackled Sirhan Sirhan, preventing any further injury.
That night stuck with Rosey for a long time #Rams #Giants
