Dwight Clark, the dashing and charismatic wide receiver who played the starring role in The Catch, the most indelible and important play in 49ers’ history, died Monday at 61, 15 months after announcing he had amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.

Clark’s wife, Kelly, announced the news, via his Twitter account.

“I’m heartbroken to tell you that today I lost my best friend and husband,” Kelly Clark said. “He passed peacefully surrounded by many of the people he loved most. I am thankful for all of Dwight’s friends, teammates and 49ers fans who have sent their love during his battle with ALS.”

The Catch

"When you are dead, you don't know that you are dead.
It is difficult only for the others.

It is the same when you are stupid."

Wow.  Stories like this make me realize how old I am.  My dad told me years ago that we watched it with some of his friends.  I have faint memories of those NFL days watching them with my dad.

I don't know why but when I first posted the video it played fine.

Now you have to click on the Youtube logo to watch it from there!?
