Ladies and Gentlemen –

Before today was known as a “Day of Infamy “ when we witnessed our nation under attack it was more known, at least in the great state of Alabama as Coach Bryant’s Birthday.

Coach Bryant said many things that I carry with me today, but this one rings a bit louder with me this morning

“Listen; does your boy know how to work? Try to teach him to work, to sacrifice and to fight. He better learn now, because he’s going to have to do it someday. I mean, some morning when you’ve been out of school twenty years and you wake up and your house has burned down and your mother is in the hospital and the kids are all sick and you’re overdrawn at the bank and your wife has run off with the drummer, what are you going to do? Throw in?”

Amen Coach…..
