Must see video

I know this is old news, but this ESPN video is the best coverage I have seen of the Jason McElwain story, and I thought I would post it so that the few and proud who visit here and have missed it could get a look (and thanks to my man DT for passing it along). McElwain is the autistic teenager who is the manager for his high school basketball team. In his last home game, the coach put him in the game and he made six three-point shots (and notice that the opposing team looks like they are still playing defense - no freebies here). Before you click the link, get the tissues ready, because if you don't get at least a little misty watching it, you either hate sports, have no children or have no heart.

Thank you for posting this video. Seeing that I am a television challenged blog reader, I had only heard this story and not seen any of the video. What a great story! I even made Andolyn watch it and she loved it. Not a dry eye in the house. While J-Mac is clearly the star, the coach is my hero. What a great victory for the purity of sports.
