A WHOLE PIE!

For over a decade, no one's been more exciting to watch than you.

I saw your first ever play as a pro, a kick return for a touchdown that came after a Minnesota Viking player talked trash to you. He wasn't the last guy to make that mistake either. I've seen that scene play out many times, pretty much always with the same results.

The memory of you running, arms outstretched, into the Saint Louis end zone to take us to the NFC Championship is an image I doubt will ever leave my head. That is, to this day,still the best football game I ever watched.

My best memory though? The day you signed an autograph for a sick little boy that coached in flag football. He's since gotten a kidney transplant and is doing fine (and he's a great receiver too).

Football can be a cruel game, but even the saddest moments can't take away from the memories we gain along the way.

So to sum it all up...

Thank you, Steve.

It may be lame to some, but I'm with Philly...  I'm hoping and praying this is all conjecture.  I almost want to cry.

 

As a guy that had to beat almost every odd imaginable to reach even a tenth of the athletic success in sports that Steve did, I felt like he was doing it for me and underdogs everywhere.  Undersized, angry, fiery, having to scrap and scrape for everything he got...  That's pretty much been my life as well.  I knew one day his career would be over - but, I never imagined that it would be in another team's jersey.  I really, really hope it isn't true.
