SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS)— With last week’s passing of anti-apartheid leader Nelson Mandela, John Madden had a chance to tell the KCBS morning crew about the time he met the revolutionary.
“It was one of the great days of my life,” he said. It was during a Dallas Cowboy’s game in 1999 where the visiting team was the Washington Redskins.
Mandela was Jerry Jones’ guest. After the game, Madden said he got a call in the press box inviting him down to meet Mandela.
