Okay. It is difficult to remember and to thank everyone who has had an effect on my life. I have to give special thanks to my parents, to my four brothers, my two sisters, and my wife, Bernadette. I’d also like to acknowledge our four sons and our four daughters, and our fifteen grandchildren.
I can’t figure out what caused all of this. It is important to acknowledge the Rooney family and the McGinley families. They have impacted my life and the lives of my entire family tremendously. I would also like to thank the people of Canton, Steve Perry, and the Hall of Fame staff.
I have been very fortunate and I’ve had a lot to be thankful for. I was born with a talent to play football, had the motivation to become the best player that I could, and I also was fortunate enough to play in the great city of champions, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
