Craig Sager RIP

So many plaudits in the media for the recently departed Craig Sager.  One story we heard this morning struck us:  after chemo treatments, he would don his colorful sports jacket and head back out to cover an NBA game.  That attitude helped him defeat leukemia in his first bout with it.

He got an ESPY award this summer and said:

“I will never give up, and I will never give in. I will continue to keep fighting, sucking the marrow 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.”

What courage.  What a comeback.  Nobody gets out of these blues alive, but Craig Sager showed us all how to fight back.  Hats off, RIP.
