Today's letter-

"A WARRIOR"

BY MY CHILDHOOD HERO, THE GREAT

ROMAN GABRIEL

  A  WARRIOR  
FOOTBALL PLAYERS ARE WARRIORS.  WE ARE THE BEST OF THE BEST WHO ARE WELL CONDITIONED AND GIVE 110%  FROM THE OPENING WHISTLE UNTIL THE FINAL WHISTLE!!  WE PRACTICE AND PLAY HURT FOR THE OUTCOME OF VICTORY.  WE UNDERSTAND TEAMWORK, COMRADE, GIVING AND SHARING FOR A COMMON CAUSE!!   WE KNOW THAT A MAN WITHOUT PROBLEMS IS DEAD, AND THAT A PROBLEM IS A CHALLENGE WAITING TO BE SOLVED.  MANY OF US HAVE DIFFERENT DEFINITIONS  OF BEING A WARRIOR;  BUT I BELIEVE WE ALL AGREE THAT WE ARE WARRIORS.  LET ME ALSO SAY THAT A TRUE WARRRIOR KNOWS  THAT FOOTBALL IS A KIDS GAME AND SHOULD BE TREATED AS SUCH.  WE PLAYED FOR THE ENJOYMENT OF THE GAME, AND FOR THE RESPECT OF OUR FAMILY, FRIENDS AND FANS!!  

THE POSITIVES OF HAVING PLAYED PROFESSIONAL FOOTBALL CERTAINLY OUT WEIGH THE NEGATIVES.  PLAYING HURT HAS CARRIED OVER INTO SO MANY OF OUR LIFES.  STROKES, ARTHRITIS, HEART FAILURE, JOINT REPLACEMENTS AND DEATH BEING THE BIGGEST NEGATIVE.  SO MANY HAVE GIVEN SO MUCH TO THE GAME,  BUT ONLY TO BE FORGOTTEN BUY THE NFL AND PLAYERS ASSOCIATION.   

WOULD I DO IT OVER AGAIN? YES!!  A FILIPINO/ IRISH KID FROM WILMINGTON, NORTH CAROLINA  HAVING THE OPPORTUNITY TO   COMPETE AND PERFORM WITH THE BEST OF THE BEST IN THE WORLDS GREATEST  GAME HAS BEEN QUITE A RIDE!!  IT IS A SIN THAT OUR OWN LEAGUE HAS FORGOTTEN US.  

SINCERELY,
ROMAN GABRIEL 18
