What a thrill to meet Kurt Warner and Dick Vermeil at the Pageant as they looked back the Super Bowl season of 1999-2000.
Vermeil says he can vividly remember the night Trent Green got injured and all eyes turned to Warner. He said he told the team they'd win and they'd win with Warner.
Warner said he remembers being prepared for the challenge back then at age 28. He talked about the sacrifices and suffering that goes into becoming a champion and the faith in himself when all others never believed in him He talked about sitting on the bench in college and having pro coaches say he wasn't good enough to quarterback a high school team, but never did he doubt himself. It was inspirational stuff and with the highlights of that year on the screen it was very cool
Warner said a childm basketball was his favorite sport and Michale Jordan was his favorite player.
Dick Vermeil these days is bottling and selling his own wine.
