Art Donovan, a Hall of Fame pro football star with the Baltimore Colts, died on Sunday, August 4 at the age of 88. Donovan helped to lead the Colts to the 1958 National Football League championship. He ate with the same verve as he tackled.
In our book, we discuss how Donovan was known as a late-night food binger, gobbling up pizzas, hot dogs and other foods long after dinner time. But on the morning of the NFL championship game in 1958, Donovan opted for a light pre-game meal: two bowls of consomme soup.
