One accusation you can't throw at me is that I've always done my best.
It doesn't matter that I didn't win a trophy because I did it my way and I lived the dream.

Sometimes going in for a hard tackle generates a louder cheer than a great pass.
I've got a great life that I really enjoy. But there is something chewing at me inside: that adrenaline rush from football, I miss that.
