Nine years later

I wrote a few things on this day last year – it was the first year SportsAngle had been back in about five years, so I had some things to say about 9/11. I think I’ll let those speak for me again. My voice has changed a bit over the past year, but these are probably still okay. I ended up meeting Jay Fiedler and Ed Kowalczyk of Live this year, and they both vividly remember their roles in such an indescribable time in American history.

I feel like as time goes on, the memories of that day fade a little, as they become just a picture in a history book instead of a vivid memory. We must never forget, or risk being lulled into a false sense of security. And I feel for the people affected on that day, and ever since. I can’t even begin to imagine what that’s like.

*****

— Remembering Mike Piazza’s post-9/11 home run – the greatest sporting event I’ve attended in person – and the role of Live’s “Overcome.”

— Remembering unlikely hero Jay Fiedler’s 9/11 moment.

— Why Novak Djokovic – who has to go through Roger Federer again today – deserves your support.
