  • S11, Ep 31, Pt 1: Rising from the Depth of Depression & Suicide, The Allen Miller Story As Told by His Wife Cindy & Former NFL WR Brian Finneran Talk Falcons, Angel Hernandez, & Playing Augusta National

In Part 1 of this week’s show, I’m joined by LPGA Elite Instructor Cindy Miller and former NFL WR Brian Finneran.

Cindy Miller was recognized as an Elite LPGA Professional & Instructor at the PGA Merchandise Show earlier this year. We hear about that honor. On the heels of the tragic news of Grayson Murray, Cindy shares the story of her husband Allen Miller who found himself in a similar dark place. Allen was a top Amateur player in the early 70s. He played on the PGA Tour from the mid-70s to early 80s. He competed in 5 Masters Tournaments. The expectations of his father always haunted him. No matter what Allen achieved it was never good enough. It led Allen into some dark places. He attempted suicide which led him and Cindy to the brink of divorce. Hear his story as told from Cindy’s perspective.

Brian Finneran was an All-American WR at Villanova. He won the Walter Payton Award for being the best player in FCS College Football in 1997. He was an undrafted free agent signed by the Seattle Seahawks. He played in the NFL from 1999 to 2010 with the Eagles and Falcons. Brian is now a Sports Talk Radio Host at 680 The Fan in Atlanta. He shares his insights on the Falcons draft and our dismay at why they picked Michael Penix with the 8th overall selection. We also discuss Angel Hernandez doing baseball a favor by retiring, plus we hear about Brian’s round of golf at Augusta National.
