Notes & Transcripts

CBS News anchor Dan Rather admits he was always fascinated by the sport of boxing, even though he was never good at it. “In boxing you're on your own; there's no place to hide,” he says. “At the end of the match only one boxer has his hand up. That's it. He has no one to credit or to blame except himself.” Dan Rather, who boxed in high school, says his coach's greatest goal was to teach his boxers that they absolutely, positively, without question, had to be “get up” fighters. “If you're in a ring just once in your life—completely on your own—and you get knocked down but you get back up again, it's a never-to-be-forgotten experience. Your sense of achievement is distinct and unique. And sometimes the only thing making you get up is someone in your corner yelling.”
