6:15 AM Chicago
Coach Dungy had an exciting day Sunday. He had the opportunity to be a commentator for the pre-game, half time, and post-game Super Bowl coverage on NBC.
Saturday morning, Tony was honored at a prayer breakfast hosted by Athletes in Action. It was the 10th anniversary of this event and over 6,000 people attended. Tony was honored in a “This is Your Life” scenario. Seven or eight people from Tony’s past–including Donnie Shell of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Warrick Dunn of the Buccaneers, and others—came up and shared how Tony impacted their lives. It was extremely meaningful.
The rest of Saturday was mostly filled with meetings to prepare for the NBC Super Bowl broadcast. Tony also had a book signing in Tampa that was very well attended. He signed for nearly 2 hours straight. Fans even brought their copies of Quiet Strength and You Can Do It!, Tony’s children’s book, to be signed in addition to Uncommon.
Today is a travel day for all of us. We have two signings tomorrow in Indy before heading to Fort Wayne, IN on Wednesday. Tony will also be doing a school event at North Side High School in Indianapolis Tuesday morning.
This should be another busy, but exciting week.
