I found out on Wednesday that I didn’t make it into the Hall of Fame, so I won’t be going to Dallas for the Final Four.
And I am saddened that I’m not going to be there in person to watch the games with the Hall of Fame and marched out at halftime.
You know, I’ve been down this road before. But I was really assured in my heart and soul that it wasn’t going to repeat. I was on my way. I was thinking positively. My whole world is a world of positive thinking. So when I got the call, I just had to go lay down for a little bit. And my wife and kids were devastated again. They were all packed up and ready to roll to Dallas.
But it was always in the back of my mind, what if it didn’t happen … again?
Sometimes people can break under these circumstances, but I’ve learned that the most important thing is staying healthy. And in time, on God’s time, it will come. And I’ve decided that it is what it is.
This is my first time really discussing this, but I had prostate cancer last year. Cancer. Wow. Now that will make you realize the importance of life, family, friends, goals.
