According to ABC News, the retired defensive player stated that he was “less nervous going to space.” He was referencing a space trip he took in December 2021.
“I was less nervous going to space.
“You kind of wake up and you’re here. But I’m happy I’m here, because I never thought I’d make it here. I was just living, I was just enjoying life, I was just working. I was just trying to enjoy everything that came my way.
“But you look and you wonder what’s your purpose. And I found out my purpose is pretty much people. My purpose is pretty much to enjoy life and to spread joy and spread happiness and to enjoy everything that comes your way and to make sure everyone in your life feels important.”
Strahan attended the ceremony with his mother Louise Strahan and three of his four children.
The ceremony was hosted by fellow former NFL player and actor, Terry Crews and Strahan’s business partner, Constance Schwartz-Morini.
