You’re not supposed to be here

You’re not supposed to be here, but you are. This new Nike Basketball commercial featuring Lebron to kick off the 2016-2017 NBA season is really well done.  Dare I say, it even left me sentimental, and almost with a tear in my eye, as I reminisced over my own high school basketball career (career is a loose term) and a time I came out of nowhere to block a shot, pinning it against the glass in a summer league game.  The stakes weren’t quite as high, but this took me back there. Great commercial.

Make the most of every day. Life is a gift.  Be in the moment. Stay hungry. Stay humble. Keep working.  Believe.

Craig Sager’s Inspirational Speech at the 2016 Espy Awards

Batavia, Illinois product and TNT NBA broadcaster Craig Sager delivered an inspirational speech at the 2016 Espy Awards.  The fight against Cancer continues, and it continues to be a theme at the Espy Awards.  The funding of Cancer research and treatment needs to be a consistent focus in the U.S. society and worldwide, as it has impacted so many of us humans, directly and indirectly.  Cheers to Craig Sager for his message of positivity, faith, love and fight in both pre-Espy’s and Espy speeches.
