David Canary, who played...

...Candy Canaday on Bonanza from 1967 until its end in 1973 (we never missed it at our house!), died at age 77.

But did you know this?

He turned down the opportunity to play for the Denver Broncos, which drafted him in its first year as a team.

“I thought they were out of their minds,” he said in a 2004 interview for the Archive of American Television. “I was 172 pounds, I wasn’t very fast, and I couldn’t catch a pass. They called me stone fingers.”
