They have Pat Tillman’s jersey in the Hall of Fame. Pat Tillman a safety of the Arizona Cardinals walked away from a million dollar a year contract in 2001 and joined the Rangers [his brother Kevin at the same time quit playing minor league baseball to join} He was killed by friendly fire in April 2004-dying at the age of 27.
Jon Krakauer wrote a decent book about the Pat Tillman story called “Where Men Win Glory: The Odyssey of Pat Tillman” and there was a documentary that came out a couple years ago called “The Tillman Story” both are good but not great in my opinion. Maybe the problem I have with both lie with the fact Pat Tillman was a complicated man. There are things we will never know about him. He wasn’t someone who talked a lot about himself. He didn’t join the Rangers as a self-promotion. He joined and shut up and went about his job. What do I think of Pat Tillman? I run a Fantasy Football League-I named it the “Pat Tillman League”
