Kurt Warner

Kurt Warner, quarterback for the Arizona Cardinals, announced his retirement today. In my short lifetime as a sports fan, I have encountered few athletes who carried themselves with the same dignity and grace as Warner. Though he played for a football team on the wrong side of the state of Missouri (the St. Louis Rams), I couldn't help but root for him. Seth Wickersham, University of Missouri alum and current writer for ESPN The Magazine, wrote a poignant tribute to this unique man. Read below.

Warner had a great career in the NFL. It would have been better if he had started his first game at age 22 or so, instead of age 28. I hope he enters the Hall of Fame one day.
