Marv Levy represents the best side of sports. In a time when there is so much happening in professional sports that makes you want to turn off the TV, Levy's election to the Pro Football Hall of Fame reminds us that there can be honor and integrity in what often seems a shallow, petty and greedy sports world.
His unique accomplishment of coaching four consecutive Buffalo Bills teams to the Super Bowl is being admired more and more as the years pass. There are so many lessons to take note of from the tenacity and persistence that those teams displayed, even after falling just short of their ultimate goal each year. Those qualities are embodied in a coach who is most deserving of this honor.
So -- a toast to Marv Levy on his special recognition. He's one first class guy.
