No. 2: Hi Mom


There have been so many great moments in Enshrinements that it’s really difficult to single out just five of my favorites. But, that’s what I have been doing for the past several days.

Today, I share my No. 2 all-time moment. I go back four years when long-time Detroit Lions tight end Charlie Sanders delivered his speech. It was a day filled with dramatic moments from Thurman Thomas who “re-proposed” to his wife to Michael Irvin’s tear-filled delivery.

But, it was Sanders’ closing comments about his mom that tugged at me personally. I was especially moved by Charlie’s remarks as I listened from the green room on stage that day. It made me so thankful to have had my mother well into my adult years before losing her to cancer.
