Barry Sanders on life: “Maybe a good rule in life is: never become too important to do your own laundry.”
Humility is sometime of a lost quality in professional sports it seems. In a world where everyone has their own brand and that includes the touchdown stance for the video game, Sander’s simple toss-the-ball-to-the-ref-cause-you’ve-been-there-before-and-will-be-there-again action seems quaint and old fashioned. I grew up watching Sanders play the game an when he was done, he was done. He is his own man. Unpretentious and classy. I true role model.
Here’s one the world’s oldest books of wisdom on humility, “Luke 14:11 For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.”
