The Doctors are joined by Michael Strahan who chats with his close friend Dr. Ian Smith about a slew of topics including his family, co-hosting “Good Morning America" during the COVID pandemic and he also shares an inspiring message to young athletes whose sports have been sidelined due to the virus.
Michael shares he continued to work during the pandemic but admits he was "frightened to death." He says continuing to go into the studio each day to work provided him with a sense of familiarity for both himself and the "GMA" viewers. " He also says he wanted to ensure the crew and staff of the morning show were able to continue with their jobs.
Michael, who is a big fan of teamwork and working as a group for the greater good in all parts of his life, notes that many young athletes' lives have been impacted by the lack of team sports over the last 9 months. The former NFL star shares a message for all of these young players who have lost seasons and opportunities to play because of the pandemic.
"Don't lose your focus. Don't get depressed over it," the former New York Giants player says. "Continue to work on what you want to do and what you want to be."
He also notes that some kids might not be as active as they once were, but he encourages them to get out of the house safely, telling them, "You can still get better at what you want to be so that when you come back, you will be right where you need to be, which is ready to go."
