You have to hand it to Jill Kelly. The wife of Pro Football Hall of Famer and longtime Buffalo Bills quarterback Jim Kelly has updated the former NFL great's battle with oral cancer virtually every step of the way via social media. Just last week, Kelly posted a moving video on her Instagram account of the four-time AFC champion receiving support at the Erie County (N.Y.) Medical Center following his last round of radiation treatment. Jill Kelly posted more powerful images Sunday.
That's former rival and Miami Dolphins legend Dan Marino (who also visited Kelly in April) and his old AFC East counterpart sharing a compassionate embrace. And Marino wasn't the only notable visitor.
Kelly's coach at the University of Miami, Howard Schnellenberger, and former Bills and Colts general manager Bill Polian also stopped by to lift Kelly's spirits. The trio were in western New York for Kelly's 28th annual celebrity golf tournament. According to the Buffalo News, the 54-year-old now must wait six to eight weeks before MRI tests can be conducted to see if he's cancer-free. In the meantime, he's still recovering at the ECMC.
Royal road warriors
Moving to hockey, the Los Angeles Kings beat the Chicago Blackhawks 5-4 in overtime in a thrilling Game 7 of the Western Conference final. In the process, the Kings became the first team in NHL history to win three road Game 7s en route to the Stanley Cup Final.
The waiting is the hardest part
Finally in golf, Scott Langley fired a disappointing 79 at the Memorial after entering the final round only a shot off the lead. But his birdie putt on the 16th green was a memorable one. Langley's stroke put the ball tantalizingly close to the hole — but not in. He waited for what seemed like an eternity before it finally dropped. If only Carl Spackler was at Muirfield Village.
