D.A. on the NFL Films’ Story of Dolphins WR Davone Bess
One Saturday afternoon, a young Damon was dazzled by “Alcoa Presents: The NFL’s Greatest Endings” on television. It was another NFL Films masterpiece, highlighting “The Immaculate Reception,” “The Sea of Hands,” and “The Hail Mary.”

It began my lifelong fascination with NFL Films; the mythology of professional football.
When NFL Films asked me to opine for their “Top 10″ series which runs on the NFL Network and “NFL Films Presents” for ESPN2, I might as well have died and gone to John Facenda’s heaven.
Here’s one of the pieces, an awesome profile on Miami wideout Devone Bess’ triumph in the face of hardship.
