"The hardest thing will be no more locker rooms. No more Sundays. No more airplanes and training camps. You see each other torn down, angry, happy, injured. You shower with these guys, eat with these guys, sleep with these guys. You don’t spend that much time with your wife…You see them give up everything for you. You really get to love these guys. I know I’ll miss that.”
