As the Chicago Bears’ legendary number 40, Sayers was NFL Rookie of the Year in 1965 and scored a record six touchdowns in one game. After only three years in the NFL, he was voted the best halfback of the first 50 years of professional football. He was also the youngest player ever to be inducted into the Professional Football Hall of Fame. He went on to write the popular book, I Am Third, which was made into the movie Brian’s Song, depicting the relationship between Gale and Brian Piccolo, who died of cancer. The title of the book is Gale Sayers’ philosophy of life: “The Lord is first; my family and friends are second; and I am third.”

Following an incredible football career with the Chicago Bears, Sayers began another successful career in business following the same principals he used on the field. Gale Sayers is President/CEO of Sayers Computer Source, a company he and his wife Ardythe founded in 1984. The business was launched after a successful career in athletic administration and sports marketing. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Physical Education and a Masters of Science degree in Education Administration from the University of Kansas. Although his technology business is his first priority, Sayers finds time to do motivational speaking engagements and appearances for many worthwhile causes.

In 1999, Sayers was inducted into the Chicago Area Entrepreneurship Hall of Fame, and was named an Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year. In addition, Kansas University School of Education recently unveiled the Gale Sayers Microcomputer Center in Pearson Hall – an inspiration to generations of students and visitors of his dedication to education.

Will Steriod Scandal Affect Baseball Hall of Fame Chances?

Manny Ramirez’s recent failed drug test was just another black-eye for baseball, a sport that can’t seem to distance itself from the performance-enhancing drug scandal.

The interesting thing about Manny Ramirez is that he has a reputation for being among the hardest workers in baseball. Teammates tell stories about how Manny is among the first in the weight room. If he’s indeed the greatest right-handed hitter of our generation, why did Manny need to take a banned substance? I’m told the substance he took helps players recover faster, which no doubt is a big advantage to players in the their mid to late 30’s. But is it worth losing more than $7 million in salary and having your legacy tarnished forever?

One of the main attributes that makes baseball so special is its ties to the past. In no other sport do people compare the present and past like they do with baseball. So how can this era  of the power hitter and unprecedented home runs ever be compared to the past? It can’t. It will be interesting to see how people look at this era 50 years from now. I have a feeling they won’t look at it very favorably.

My guess is that many of this era’s “greats” like Alex Rodriguez, Barry Bonds, Mark McGwire, Manny Ramirez and Roger Clemens won’t get elected to the Hall of Fame, at least not on the first ballot and likely not for a number of years after if at all. If you had an isolated incident with one or two players, that would be one thing. But when you have many of the elite players either testing positive or being linked to performance enhancing drugs, there’s no way to look past it. Also, because the most hallowed record in sports – the all-time home run record – has fallen to a person suspected of taking a banned substance (Barry Bonds) and may very well fall to another person who’s already admitted taking steroids (A-Rod), many baseball fans believe the game has been tarnished forever.

Can you really mention Hank Aaron and Barry Bonds in the same sentence? I know it doesn’t sound right to me. I expect that history will view this era almost as a separate part of baseball history. There’s just no way you can compare the great players of today with those of the past. It’s not an even playing field.

I used to love to discuss the most intimidating pitchers of all-time – Roger Clemens, Nolan Ryan, Bob Gibson and Don Drysdale among them.  I was a huge fan of Clemens. He was one of the few baseball players I would pay to watch. I loved his intensity, fiery demeanor and how he instilled fear in batters. But ever since his steroids controversy, he no longer belongs in the same discussion.

I know many people talk about putting an asterisk next to the records that have been broken during this era. That’s not going to happen. But by denying those who cheated access to the hallowed grounds of Coopertown, that will in some small way show even more respect to the greats  of the past who played the game the right way.

Booking Ronnie Lott As A Speaker Pays Off Says Agency

Ronnie Lott appearanceWhen it comes to motivating and inspiring a crowd, businesses alike agree that Ronnie Lott is the perfect celebrity sports speaker to do just that. Ronnie Lott has been speaking to organizations, inspiring and motivating groups just as he did when he joined the San Francisco 49ers in 1981. Ronnie’s tenacity, leadership and team building skills are just what businesses today are looking for. Booking a Ronnie Lott speaker appearance will not only generate excitement but can reap tremendous benefits as well. 

Lott is known for his hard hitting style using both left and right cornerback positions and as a free and strong safety during his 14-year career. Lott earned 10 Pro Bowl invitations at three different positions – cornerback, free safety, and strong safety. It was, however, at free safety, where he had the freedom to cover the whole field, that he may have been most effective. In 1986, he played 14 games at the free safety position before an injury sidelined him for the final two games of the season. Still, he led the league with a career-most 10 interceptions, recorded 77 tackles, three forced fumbles and two quarterback sacks. It was perhaps his finest season.

It has been said that Lott had the uncanny ability of being able to sense the direction a play was about to take and then somehow disrupt it. “He’s like a middle linebacker playing safety,” Hall of Fame coach Tom Landry once remarked. “He’s devastating. He may dominate the secondary better than anyone I’ve seen.” Named All-Pro eight times, All-NFC six times, and All-AFC once, Lott was also selected to play in 10 Pro Bowls and was named to the NFL’s 75th Anniversary Team. He was enshrined in the Pro Football Hal of Fame in 2000.

Ronnie is also active in the community service arena, having co-founded Champion Charities in with Harris Barton in 2004. He currently serves on the boards of Champion Charities and Tipping Point, and is Chairman of the Advisory Board for Play It Smart, which promotes amateur football with the goal of developing the qualities of leadership, sportsmanship, and academic excellence in young people.

Ronnie Lott also created the Lott Trophy, which is awarded each year to the college football player who makes the biggest IMPACT (integrity, maturity, performance, academics, community and tenacity) This Ronnie Lott endorsement is one of his many proud accomplishments.

Who Is The Greatest Living Quarterback – Joe Montana, John Elway or Dan Marino?

Ask 20 sports fan who’s the greatest player in a particular sport and you’re likely get 20 different answers. One of my favorite discussions revolves around the greatest living quarterback. There are a number of worthy candidates like Troy Aikman, Steve Young, Brett Favre and Tom Brady, but in my opinion, the argument boils down to three – John Elway, Dan Marino and Joe Montana.

I believe the first criteria is to look at the number of Super Bowls each have won – Montana won four, Elway two and Marino none (Marino lost his only Super Bowl appearance to Montana’s 49ers in Super Bowl XIX).

Secondly, I look at their statistics. Joe Montana was an 8-time All-Pro and is the only quarterback to have been named Super Bowl MVP three times. He holds the record for most consecutive games with 300 or more passing yards and led the NFC in passing five times. He also holds the second highest career pass completion record, the third lowest interception record and the third highest number of seasons with 3,000 or more passes.

John Elway was a 9-time All-Pro and is the only quarterback to have started five Super Bowls. He ranks third all-time in passing attempts, yards and completions. His 148 wins rank second for a quarterback and he holds the record for most game-winning or game-tying drives in the fourth quarter with 47.

Dan Marino was a 9-time All-Pro. He’s holds the NFL record for most yards passing in a season with 5,084 and most seasons with 3,000 or more yards passing with 13. He’s ranked second in career yards passing with 61,361 and most career touchdown passes with 420.

Lastly, I like to look at their supporting cast. Montana had one of the most potent offenses in NFL history, including Jerry Rice,  Roger Craig, Tom Rathman, Brent Jones and Dwight Clark.

Similarly, Elway had future Hall of Famer Shannon Sharpe and NFL MVP Terrell Davis along with an offensive line anchored by Hall of Famer Gary Zimmerman.

Dan Marino had two powerful offensive weapons in wide receivers Mark Clayton and Mark Duper but he never had a powerful running game to balance his offense like Montana and Elway.

So who’s the greatest among those three? That’s like asking whether you prefer filet mignon or lobster. But for my money, I’ll take Elway. If the game was on the line and you needed a clutch performance, he’d be my choice.
