Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement


“I wish all my sons will get married and have two or three kids. I think a man needs two or three kids to be whole…that’s what’s important to me.”[not football]

– William Sanders, Father of Barry Sanders

When William Sanders passed away almost exactly two years ago, Mr. Sanders had 11 children, 16 grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. Read more on his life here.

But Dad, would your kids say that being married and having a family is more important sports to you? I think if we were to study what gets more father and son time and attention, sports would win in an epic blowout.

Consequently, our society does not lack grown men who do not know how to play video games or dribble a ball, but less and less know how to be a good husband and raise some children.
