Dear Mr. Sager,
First, I would like to tell you how much I admired you during your fight with Leukemia and please know that you didn’t lose to this illness. You fought and held on. The one thing I’ve come to know over the years is that the man upstairs has NEVER made a mistake and he needed you more. The one thing you taught me is to never let a diagnosis define you and stop what it is that you love to do. Even in between rounds of chemotherapy, you still managed to make the time for what it was that you did best and that’s a sideline reporter. You did things your way and most importantly, you did things the right way. When I say you did it your way, I’m talking about the suits. There were different colorways and styles and you were always a professional with a smile on your face. You were a class act and just like myself, sports was your life. We won’t mourn and be sad because you were the life of the party. Steve Kerr said it best the other night prior to their game on Thursday, instead of a moment of silence, let’s clap for a great man and that I did. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this rough time. Legends never die. You fought the good fight and won. Sleep eternally.
