"We used to have a coach who said 'the ship is sailing,' " says Rashad. "What that meant was the ship is sailing with or without you. You're on the boat or you're not on it. Well, that became my saying. The ship is sailing. Hey, we're out of here," he says, recalling his thoughts about his future during one NFL year when he suffered a knee injury. Then his next thought was "let's make sure I've got another boat to get on."

With NBA basketball, NFL football, "Notre Dame Saturday," "NBA Inside Stuff" and "NBA Off the Court," Rashad is now sailing a fleet.

Ken Shouler is an author and regular contributor to Cigar Aficionado. He lives in White Plains, New York.
