Most exciting for me was to make the Pro Bowl in 14 of 15 years.
I’ve caught fish as big as I am. I’ve caught marlin close to 300 pounds.
I can ski out of my back door.
I bet I made close to 20 tackles because nobody on either side knew what they were doing.
After a few games I knew I was going to be able to compete. The idea of being a star never crossed my mind.
Team doctors’ jobs those days were to keep you on the field.
I was always the last one chosen for football games in Central Park.
I probably played hurt a lot more times than I should have.

I just wanted to be an athlete.
You are the land. The land is you.
When a man lies, he murders some part of the world.
