The late, great Tony Gwynn was of course more than "just" a baseball luminary, and that's especially the case in his native San Diego. For evidence of that claim, just check out the helmet sticker that Gwynn's alma mater, the San Diego State Aztecs, will be sporting this season on the gridiron ...

Nice touch and a fitting, understated nod to a genuine civic hero.
(Note: Saturday night's game between Northern Arizona and the Aztecs will be broadcast on CBS Sports Network.)
