Giants running back David Wilson's retirement speech was a perfect farewell


After aggravating the injury in practice, both Wilson’s spine specialist and Giants doctors advised him that it would be best for him to retire from the game. On Wednesday, he gave a much more gracious and accepting speech than you’d ever expect from someone under the circumstances. “These are tears of joy,” Wilson said.”Don’t for a second do you all think that I’m pitying myself or sad because I got to live my dream. I’ll set another dream and be great at that because I always look at trying to be great at whatever I do.” (USA Today)
