I was so lucky to get 5 years around Joey Moss in Edmonton. He made me a better person everyday. Rough day for the CFL losing two legends. 😪

In life, and now, sadly, upon news of his death, there was and is one way above all others to identify Joey Moss: "beloved member of the Edmonton Oilers organization".
