Todd Christensen, an Oakland Raider and Oakland Raiders Legend, died on Wednesday of complications due to liver surgery. Todd Christensen was just 57 years old.
Todd Christensen was the one person who everyone knew was a star and not just on the football field. The second-round draft choice of the Dallas Cowboys played in a very effective back-up role. But then he was transferred to the Oakland Raiders, and that’s where he became a star.
Todd Christensen – or “Todzilla” – will be remembered for his intellect and his overall personality. He’s the kind of person who you know is special and you know is a part of your life, but he’s so much a regular guy you don’t want to get ready for knowing what ‘the sacrafice’ means.
I don’t and maybe that was a good thing!
