20 years from now when they get together to reminisce some will talk about a tough win they have during next fall's 2013 football season. Some may talk about a tough loss and how one got away from them. A few may talk about a prank or two they pull on a teammate. But, they ALL will talk about the touchdown that 7 year old Jack Hoffman scored in Memorial Stadium that afternoon on April 6, 2013.
It's moments like these that make me do what I do and why I think the world of athletics is so special. The important thing is to be ready to act when the moment presents itself. Sometimes we only have a brief window to respond when that opportunity arises and I think we need to be ready to act. It may take a little extra work and a little extra time, but be on the lookout for how you can help make a memory for someone else. In the end, you'll be making a memory for yourself too. One that means a whole lot more than any championship game you might ever win.
Make a difference.
