Sports teach us teamwork, perseverance, handling victory and defeat, and making sacrifices, all of which I have tried to instill in my daughters. As I have aged and left my glory years behind me, I have gladly become an avid fan and spectator.

The globe reminds me of my childhood and how my experiences and relationships around the world molded me into the person that I am today. It also serves as the motivation to take my family to see the places where I grew up.

My grandfather flew a B-24 bomber in the Pacific Theater during World War II. He was my hero and taught me about faith, humility and service.
