CLIP REEL: TONY GONZALEZ


"Bye bye!"

By now, you likely know of Chiefs TE Tony Gonzalez saving a man's life (a Charger fan, oddly) in a California restaurant by performing the Heimlich. You may not remember that back in November 2000, Gonzalez ran into a camerman along the sidelines; the camerman had a seizure. When he was taken to the hospital, they discovered a brain tumor that might have killed him had it gone undetected. In a way, Gonzalez saved his life as well. In addition to his accomplishments on the field, he's always been a class act off it; it's time to celebrate him.
