You all know that we hand out a game ball to the outstanding player. Well, I’d like to change that. We just got word that Brian Piccolo is … that he’s sick, very sick. And, it looks like he … might never play football … again, or, uh, … a long time. And, I think we should dedicate ourselves to, uh, give our maximum effort to win this game and give the game ball to Pic. We can all sign it. And take it up. Aw, sh-sh, my God.
