The main topic of the great segment is the very touching story between Vai Sikahema and Barrett Brooks. Fantastic!!

Having said that, the backstory is worthy of viewing in and of itself: 5'8" then-sportscaster Sikahema taking on the 6'5" Jose Canseco when Canseco was transitioning from baseball to being a professional boxer!!

I wanted to be second, and I watched a little of the clip. Old uniforms in the NFL are nice.

Canseco may look physically like an imposing man but not really "a man". You can't judge a book by it's cover. Lesson learned from Jose and his silly agent.

Touching story for all humans. Random act of kindness led to inspiring Barrett to do great things. Now their paying it forward together. Totally random how they reconnected. The odds of that happening...nice how that worked out.
