Hank Aaron, one of the most beloved professional athletes of the 20th Century, died Friday at the age of 86. On top of retiring as MLB’s home run king (a distinction many still grant to him because of how Barry Bonds passed him), Aaron had a sense of humor that was magnetic.
Watch this clip of him with David Letterman, and make sure you make it all the way to the kicker at the end:

I had never seen that clip before. The twinkle in his eye when he laughed off not making it to the White House in time to be greeted by Richard Nixon is truly fantastic.
