Instagrams That Inspire: Coy Wire
'Flow Like Water. Never be content. Keep moving towards a better you. Don't stop. Never, ever, ever stop. What's your ocean?'
The Pope's visit had it's amazing moments, but it also pushed Coy Wire off the CNN schedule over the weekend. Although Wire is a regular anchor on HLN's Weekend Express, as well as an analyst and writer for FOX Sports, I usually catch him on CNN where he usually appears at some point each weekend. During Ball Gate, Wire was seen a lot, but between Trump and the Pope, I might have to actually turn on HLN to see the chin and the grin that always brightens my day.
Wire, who played for the NFL, with the Buffalo Bills from 2002–07, and the Falcons from 2008-10 is a breath of fresh air whenever he appears on CNN. His smile is contagious and he clearly seems to love his job. I actually read Wire, before seeing him on screen after he wrote a great opinion piece on CNN.com last year about Michael Sam and the NFL. Although I think Sam's downward spiral is in part self inflicted, Wire's piece, especially given his own experience was a great read.
