Well, I may be a little late here, and I’ll be shocked if this kid isn’t already on (or soon to be on) Ellen, Oprah, and the whole morning talk show circuit, but I love this stuff. When teams take a young fan who is battling illness and make him feel part of the team, I can’t help but smile.
This run, which was actually a pretty good display of vision and break-away speed, made this young boys life. The crowd was into it, the players were loving it, and he was treated like a champion after. If this doesn’t bring any joy to your life, I don’t know what will.

In cased you missed it, Doug Anderson from University of Detroit dropped this filthy dunk last night in route to winning the College Slam competition. Not to take away from the NBA’s dunk contest (because UW’s own Terrence Ross won it this year), but this dunk would have won that competition as well.
Lets hope “Dunking Doug”, as he is suitably nicknamed, finds his way onto an NBA team in hopes of one day getting the NBA contest back to form. We all know Lebron James won’t.

Today’s video brings happiness deep down inside. Not only is it a nasty pitch sending a Philly strolling back to the dugout, but it is all about the velocity. 58 MPH? Sends you right back to the days in little league where one kid throwing high 40’s cheese was a death sentence. Ring em up.
Now, the gun shows I got 58 if I reach back and let one fly. This is to keeping the dream alive. 58 MPH curveball specialists are underused and undervalued.
