Thanks for the memories

Jerry Rice signed a one-day contract with the San Francisco 49'ers so that he could officially retire with the team.

Twenty years, most every receiving record in the books, and the man did it with style and class.

A lot of athletes should learn that lesson.

1 Jerry Rice was a Denver Bronco for a little while, you know. I found his story so inspiring that I wrote a song about it called Young Man's Game. It's on ianthealy.com if you want to hear it. You're absolutely right with one caveat: EVERYONE should learn that lesson, not just athletes.

2 Probably the most class act in the history of the NFL.
