Walter Payton is my all-time favorite football player, beating Peyton Manning by a neck.   While pondering and reading about all things Don Cornelius after his death was announced earlier today, I found a connection between the “Soul Train” creator and Sweetness that I didn’t know about.    No wonder Payton could make defenders miss with such seeming ease!
