Excerpt from It’s How You Play the Game. Powerful Sports Moments That Taught Lasting Values to America’s Finest by Brian Kilmeade…
“Even today, I’m tireless when it comes to the projects I have to get done. I go at it like I’m still that twentysomething boxer on the road, in the snow, putting in that roadwork. It’s that ‘whatever it takes’ attitude that got me through training for my fights, and now it’s what guides me through life as a father, businessman, and broadcaster. I always feel like I have to be the one to run in the rain because the other guy doesn’t. That’s probably what explains how I won.”
