Teein’ it up for Kelly

 

Dan Marino left his Dolphins colors behind in exchange for a Buffalo Bills blue T-shirt with the words “Kelly Tough” printed on the front. Anything for a dear friend. “Everybody loves Jim. I love him too, man,” Marino (pictured) said Monday, before the start of Jim Kelly’s annual charitable golf tournament in Batavia, N.Y. “I just can’t wait for him to get better and get back out here with us.” Marino, the former Dolphins star quarterback and Kelly’s longtime rival, was on hand in what was one of the largest turnouts of the tournament’s 28-year history. The only one missing was Kelly. Too weak to attend, the Bills Hall of Fame quarterback is recovering in a hospital in Buffalo less than a week after completing radiation and chemotherapy sessions to treat sinus cancer, which spread from his jaw. – AP
