Spent the last 3 days packing up my childhood home as the new owners take possession Tuesday.  Now as unsentimental as I am, it was very hard for me to sit there with my Dad and watch him anguish over every thing we were doing.  The man sweated and toiled for 30 years to pay it off not to mention my mother passed there.  50 years of our lives life passed through the doors there.  The hardest thing to do was drive away for the last time.  Just thought I would share that, as much as I love the game, there is so much more to things than football. 

I know today, my old coach was having a real tough time.

Not MPP... ONE TASK!  Teach them!  🙂

It,s amazing how much 4 walls can hold inside, an endure through the years ,and a house in the beginning had  become a HOME, that only a family could  build. That's a hard one swallow coach.

It's always about more than football.

And today, you were there for him. That is the important part.

To be good you have to work hard. To be better, you have to work harder. To be great, you have to keep working when the good ones stop.

When you spend that many years in one place the home becomes a part of the family. When that time ends and you move away it is like leaving that family member behind.

All the best Coach. I am sure its been a day of many emotions for you and your dad.

To do what ought to be done but would not have been done unless I did it, I thought to be my duty.
