Lookout Jimmy Chitwood, Here Comes J-Mac

I saw a news clip the other night about this basketball player from upstate New York. I told the story to Mary last night and as I was relaying it I got choked up. So did she. Click the link and watch for yourself.

Truly inspirational. And not because he is autistic. That, to me, is only part of the story. It is the way he dedicates himself to something he loves. The way the other players react to him as he gets into his first game. The way the school has embraced him. The fact that he hit six three pointers in four minutes coming off the bench. The fact that the coach thought about how the team manager would feel about getting to suit up for senior night.

It's all good.
