I’m inspired and I am thinking back and I’m thinking about one other inspirational point in my life. And this is when I was 19 years old, which I think really defines this team.

This is when my godfather read me a poem and he had me stand in the mirror and his poem was the man in the glass and I want to share with you guys right now. Goes like this:

"The Man in the Glass. When you get what you want in your struggle for self and the world makes you king for a day, just go to a mirror and look at yourself and see what that man has to say. Although there are others through life’s pathway whose judgment upon you must pass, the fellow whose verdict counts most in your life is the man staring back from the glass. You may win all the medals and snow the rest and think you’re a wonderful guy, but the man in the glass says you’re only a fraud if you can’t stare him straight in the eye. He’s the one to please. After it’s all said and done, for he’s with you clear up to the end and you’ve passed the most dangerous difficult task, if the man in the glass is your friend. You may fool the whole world down the pathway of years and get pats on the back as you pass, but your final reward will be heartaches and tears, if you’ve cheated the man in the glass."
