The Colts’ Leukemia-Stricken Coach Gave A Beautiful Postgame Speech

“My vision that I’m living is to see two more daughters get married, dance at their weddings, and then hoist that Lombardi several times.”

Chuck Pagano’s had a rough season. After taking over the Indianapolis Colts — his first NFL head-coaching job — Pagano was diagnosed with leukemia, and he’s currently on leave to undergo treatment. But Pagano attended today’s game against the Miami Dolphins, and after the Colts pulled out a narrow three-point win — which featured quarterback Andrew Luck setting the rookie record for most passing yards in a single game — Pagano gave a beautiful speech to the locker room. If you don’t get a little watery-eyed at the point where he talks about living to dance at his two daughters’ weddings, then you should get your tear ducts checked.
