Remembering Craig Sager and the Legacy He Left
Famed sports broadcaster Craig Sager has passed away at the age of 65 from his battle with leukemia. What a legacy he has left behind.
Even in the midst of the challenges he faced with his health, Sager continued to chase his dreams, and covered his very first NBA finals in his 44 career this past year.
Aside from his incredibly successful sports broadcasting career, filled with those trademark colorful suits, shirts, and ties. Sager was an incredible father and family Sager's son, shared a heartwarming video honoring his dad:
If you haven't seen his 2016 ESPYs speech upon receiving the Jimmy V award, I highly recommend it.
As Sager began his speech, he thanked his wife, "there is no fear in love, and your love is my strength."
“Time is something that cannot be bought, it cannot be wagered with God, and it is not in endless supply,” Sager remarked. "Time is simply how you live your life." (Tweet That)
“I see the beauty in others, and I see the hope for tomorrow. If we don’t have hope and faith, we have nothing,”
Even as Sager's daily strength dwindled, his outlook on life didn't, “I will never give up, and I will never give in. I will continue to keep fighting, sucking the barrel out of life, as life sucks the marrow out of me. I will live my life full of love and full of fun. It’s the only way I know how."
May we all live a life with the same attitude as Sager so beautifully described at the 2016 ESPYs #SagerStrong
