What do you think of that!
It is warm enough in Kansas to open the windows today; i am having flashbacks to Florida and the Football Fun I had there...
ribs and red wine, the sunday paper, sunny breeze, pets dancing around, and Lots of Tony Dungy. He seems to be the MAN today as Indianapolis loves him, and his Excellence becomes more apparent as time passes. We loved him in Florida but as Warren Sapp said, someone took his cake out of the oven...
After i check the Meat, i will add the warren sapp story (at bottom of this post).
Happy worshipping of superBaal, the altar of politically correct religion.
I liked the comment one sportscaster made, that Coach Wooden's teams were the last which used the bank shot. You know I am a fan of the bank shot; it is the humble shot with the best mathematical probability.
In a statement from the university: "This is a sad day at UCLA," said Chancellor Gene Block. "Coach Wooden's legacy transcends athletics; what he did was produce leaders. But his influence has reached far beyond our campus and even our community. Through his work and his life, he imparted his phenomenal understanding of leadership and his unwavering sense of integrity to so many people. His 'Pyramid of Success' (see below) hangs in my office to remind me every day of what it takes to be an effective leader. He was truly a legend in his own time, and he will be a legend for generations to come."

"Coach Wooden never tired of telling us that once you become a good person, then you have a chance of becoming a good basketball player."
"He was known for reciting his father's "two sets of three" -- "never lie, never cheat, never steal" and "don't whine, don't complain, don't make excuses" -- and a "seven-point creed," also passed along by his father. The point Wooden used most in his coaching, he said, was "make each day your masterpiece." Still, Wooden was probably best known for his famed "Pyramid of Success," which he began developing in the 1930s. He said that it was "the only truly original thing I have ever done."
"This is a game played on your feet," he said. "If you get blisters, you can't play the game."
