As most of you know, we lost a "colorful" sportscaster last month to a difficult variety of leukemia. His name is Craig Sager and those who knew him all agree, it would be difficult to find a more decent human being.
I'm writing this because after two bone marrow transplants and two remissions, sadly his cancer returned for a third time. Knowing too well the gravity of his chance for survival, he was asked, "So what now, Craig?" His reply? "Hope is as important as breath." I knew at that moment that those words would be my mantra for the rest of my life. If anyone else here reading this cares to take those words into their own lives or share them with others as I am now, I am certain it would make Craig Sager happy.
Craig taught us a lot about life and love and family and sport, but I think most important of all, Craig Sager taught us HOPE IS AS IMPORTANT AS BREATH.
Sad to hear of his passing.
Also reminds me of two Yogi Berra quotes
Baseball is 90% mental and the other half is physical.
It ain’t over till it’s over.
