Eddie DeBartolo Jr. rises at 4 a.m. on his 3,000-acre ranch in Montana and takes his three dogs for a walk in the frigid winter air. No matter it was minus-3 the other morning. Off he went. The former football owner who guided the San Francisco 49ers to greatness — and five Super Bowl titles — in the 1980s and 90s now raises Clydesdale horses while operating his Florida commercial development and management business from thousands of miles away near the mountain resort town of Whitefish, Mont. It's a long way from the football world that long ruled his life.
