Every day, in one way or another, I live my life inspired by Dr. King and what he represented and I want to make my life matter, maybe not in the way Dr. King's life did but I want my life to impact the lives of others like Dr. King, Jackie Robinson and others.That speech, that day, from Dr. King, and the fact that I was there made all the difference in my life's path.

Dick was the type of broadcaster who combined the best of two worlds.Both the personal intimate observations of a seasoned student of the game and the person who made the high tech aspect of today’s sports scene accessible to ordinary folks. My career was tied to his in that he announced my games for KTLA when I was at UCLA. Much later, I had the opportunity to be his color man for the March Madness broadcasts of CBS. He was an accommodating and generous guy to work with and my thoughts and prayers go out to his family. KAJ #DickEnberg

In the words of #BruceLee “Think lightly of yourself and deeply of the world.”
I was 21 when I met #BruceLee, but his teachings, both in his studio and by his example, have stayed with me for the rest of my life. #HappyBirthdayBruceLee #BecomingKareem #GameOfDeath
