In case you haven’t heard it well known former football coach and present day broadcaster, John Madden, is being inducted in the Pro-Football Hall of Fame. I saw part of an interview with him this week. He talked about how as a coach he used to work 18 hour days and travel 6 months each year. Then he made a statement that revealed is more than football. He said something to this extent, "There should be a hall of fame for the wives of coaches. They’re the ones who care for the family and pick up the slack when their husbands are traveling six months out of the year." Though Madden devoted his life to football, he understands that importance of his wife and that life is more than football.
