Daniel Rodriguez carries the names and memories of eight of his military brothers into stadiums brimming with color nearly every Saturday from August till January. Some games he carries a flag that he has nearly died protecting on a myriad of occasions, far from home. What he carries beneath his jersey cannot be quantified, it refuses to be typical or generic; it is a conglomeration of patriotism, resiliency, and rapport. Daniel Rodriguez’s moment didn’t change the outcome of a game, but it transcended a sport. And I am a better person as a result of hearing it.
