Coming October 2022: "The Last Folk Hero: The Life and Myth of Bo Jackson"

The strangest Walter Payton video ever seen

In the course of researching Sweetness: The Enigmatic Life of Walter Payton, I’ve come across tons and tons and tons of video footage. Walter at Jackson State, Walter with the Bears, Walter showing off his restaurant, Walter being inducted into the College and Pro Football Hall of Fames.

This, however, well, uh … yeah.

There are some things a person only does once or twice in a lifetime. Skydiving. Dancing with Menudo. Eating poop-covered rice. And, of course, witnessing Walter Payton getting increasingly excited as he turns on a turkey.

Enjoy …

PS: A Q&A I did today with DaBears.com. Big thanks to an excellent site.
