My grandpa lived a great life well into his 90’s. He is gone now but was an avid golfer well into his 70’s. He lost his vision to macular degeneration but had several good friends he played with on the same course even after he lost his sight. 

One day, on a 130 yard par 3 his buddies told him “pin is back right today Fred”. Well, that day the blind man hit a hole in one, which was interestingly 50 years after his first and only other one. 

That has always been one of my favorite stories.

There were some great stories about VY lighting his NFL $$$ on fire

He once reserved every seat on a commercial airline flight so he could fly alone. 

Another time he picked up the tab for every diner inside a TGI Friday’s

That said, I could not have handled the big bucks at such a young age. Just too bad he hasn’t grown up more. What a great player at Texas.

Fran would be right at home in South Carolina. Deer season is short, but bitching about the refs is in season 365 days a year.

I want to echo your kudos for the link to the article about the opioid addicted doctor  

As a practicing physician it is a sobering reminder about how none of us are immune when it comes to the dangers  of addiction.  

Any one can be snared by the temptations and addictive potential of drugs and alcohol. Our 11W community has impressed me in how it offers advice and support for those seeking help.

St John was such a great basketball venue. You felt like you were climbing up a ladder getting to those upper deck seats. Every fan was so close to the court and the design made the noise deafening.

I had a troubled locker room with Kareem Hunt and Josh Gordon. Maybe if Tressel was our coach he could have sat down with them, had some cookies and milk and straightened out their behavior.

Reminded me of the support shown by Michigan students following the incident several years ago when a driver intentionally ran down students on the Ohio State campus. 

Right is right.

I’m just glad Twitter didn’t exist when I was 20 years old.
