A feel good story....

We all know that professional athlete's have this "reputation" for being shall we say "above the rest of us" sometimes.  I can honestly say that after reading this news story, I realize that in some cases that "reputation" is undeserved.  This news story is about a little boy in Florida who had a 35 minute seizure and has been pretty much confined to a wheel chair since but recently with the help of the Jacksonville Jaguars (I'm not a fan but hey, I'm a sucker for a good feel good story) he was able to something pretty remarkable. 

I teared up and then I watched the video and teared up again.  I'm just really glad that there is a lot of good going on in this crazy world of ours.

Ohmigosh, not even gonna watch the video because the story's got tears prickling...See, if we could all just focus on *these* aspects of athletics, instead of the stupid/arrogant/obnoxious attention-seeking aspects, everything would be a better experience :o)
