Outside of when I lived in Portland and worked the Trailblazer games, I’ve never been a huge basketball fan. But no matter what my thoughts on the sport, I’ve always enjoyed watching any sport on TV. Great broadcasters make it worthwhile. They welcome you in and create an atmosphere that makes it possible to forget for a moment the rest of the world.
Craig Sagar was one of the truly great reporters. With his trademark flamboyant suits (which I can totally get behind), Craig interviewed everyone with respect and an understanding that those of us watching at home were there to be entertained.
This year, Craig was presented with the Jimmy V award. He knew that sports was only a part of what matters. During his talk he noted that “Time is something that cannot be bought, it cannot be wagered with God, and it is not in endless supply. Time is simply how you live your life.”
