I will never forger Pat Tillman

I know this happened awhile ago but I was looking through some old Sports Illustrated issues I had in storage and I ran across the one with Tillman on the front shortly after he died. I got to thinking you know 10 or 20 years from now when I tell my grandkids about the decade between 2000-2010 I was thinking what good could I tell them? We have the steroid era in baseball, refs betting on basketball games, and NFL players shooting themselves in the leg or getting DUIs almost every week but then I remembered Pat Tillman. The guy walked away from money, fame, and the sport he loved to go fight for our freedom after 9/11. The man saw his country attacked and he went and faced our darkest fears. So before I tell them about a game winning catch or a goal-line stand that won the game for one of the teams I root for I will tell them the story of Pat Tillman- A True American Hero who went and laid his life down for his country. R.I.P Mr. Pat Tillman
