November 4, 2012:  “I mentioned before the game that you guys were living in vision, and you weren’t living in circumstances,” said Chuck Pagano, the Indianapolis Colts’ first-year head coach who has been away from the team after being diagnosed with leukemia on Sept. 26.  “Because you know where they had us in the beginning — every last one of them. But you refused to live in circumstances, and you decided consciously, as a team and as a family, to live in a vision. And that’s why you bring things home like you brought things home today. That’s why you’re already champions, and well on your way.”

“I’ve got circumstances — you guys understand it, and I understand it. It’s already beat. And my vision that I’m living is to see two more daughters get married, dance at their weddings, and then hoist that Lombardi [Trophy] several times… I’m dancing at two more weddings, and we’re hoisting that trophy together, men.”

Pagano gave his speech in the Colts locker room after the team’s 23-20 win over the Miami Dolphins.
