Now that he has reconsidered his decision to retire, I hope he recalls what his daughter said. Having coached soccer for 20 years, It's pretty clear to me what she meant, and what he meant by telling us what his daughter said. He should retire. It's a chance at a new life.

Apparently God changed his mind. Gotta watch those sports-guys. Lots of money involved.
