  2. 2.  Marino visited Kelly in the hospital in Buffalo and described his friend as a “tough guy.” The former NFL players grew up in Pittsburgh and both were first- round NFL draft picks in 1983. “It’s hard to even understand what he’s going through,” Marino told the Buffalo News. “He’s in the fight for his life. He’ll win.”
