A Hoops Story for the Ages

Click on this link to Dave Sez's website and then watch the CBS News story.

This is a heartening, uplifting and inspiring story. Many sports fans get caught up in wanting to connect with greatness. They want to see Kobe score 100, claim that they were there when Wilt scored 100, get Bill Russell's autograph (talk about tough feats!), see a no-hitter, witness the next "great" NCAA playoff game, etc.

The funny thing of it is, greatness is probably before us every day.

You just have to know where to look.

It's not about big arenas, big names, big contracts, or the highest-level teams.

It's about heart, it's about effort, and it's about priorities.

Click to the link and watch the video.

You'll see what I mean.

I saw this and I loved it too. What a great story although, in 30 years you know his kids are gonna be like. "Yeah dad we know you hit six 3's in a game one time".

But seriously its a great story. Its great to see someone rise to the occasion like this when nobody thinks they can. Also to see it done for pure love of the game.
