Condolences Go Out To Randall Cunningham

July 1st, 2010

While Randall Cunningham never played for the Buccaneers, the former superstar quarterback did touch Joe’s life. So upon hearing of Cunningham’s tragic loss of his 2-year-old son yesterday, Joe felt compelled to post his condolences.

Back in 1993, a very young Joe was working on a children’s educational game show called Scramble, which was hosted by Cunningham, who at the time was one of the biggest names in the NFL.

Without all the sortid details, the syndicated TV show was managed by an ethicly challenged sports marketing representative whose true colors came out as he ran short of money during production. Upon learning of the complex situation, Cunningham stepped up and personally worked to right all the wrongs.

Surely, at the time, Cunningham probably wished he had never gotten involved, and he surely could have had his people handle it. But Cunningham stepped up and handled himself with a world of class. Joe subsequently learned a lot about doing the right thing.

Years later, Joe wasn’t surprised to learn that Cunningham became a minister and deeply involved in his Las Vegas community.

Joe’s heart goes out to Cunningham and his family. Joe can’t imagine their great pain.
