I tear up every time I see the ovation at the end of the game on SportsCenter or online.
He's the reason I became a Pacers fan. I'm not sure if I will love the team as much as I have in the past because he is now gone. I really wish he would play next season..Just as a bench player just to see him get that Championship ring.
I posted my thoughts earlier here
When you're playing against a stacked deck, compete even harder. Show the world how much you'll fight for the winners circle. If you do, someday the cellophane will crackle off a fresh pack, one that belongs to you, and the cards will be stacked in your favor.
I must've ran in to watch Sportscenter in the next room at least 3 times last night to see the Reggie stuff again. I did get a bit choked up. Softie.
It's been over 24 hours now, and I am still torn up. I went out with my friends to get my mind off this but I broke into tears at least 3 times, they understood, but I still felt Crazy. Getting over this is going to be hard, overtime it will fade into the background of my soul, but everyday I will remember.
It's so hard letting go of Reggie, because once I realized that Reggie was gone, I realized so was my childhood. I remember all the years I'd sit and be glued to the TV and watch in amazement as my hero showed up every game never dissapointing me,and it brings a tear to my eye and a smile to my face.
Another reason letting him go is so difficult is because Reggie was the only person in the world that I could always depend on, he never let me down, he never dissapointed me, he was always there to give me feelings of hope that I could apply to anything in my life.
Reggie, I have written so many things about you recently, and throughout my entire life. I love the way you carried yourself, whether you were young Reggie or Uncle Reggie. You are the reason basketball is the only sport I would give my soul to play, because I saw you do it, I love you, you are my hero.
