Think, Laugh and Cry

Posted: April 5th, 2010

In the time leading up to the national championship basketball game later on this evening, I happened to run into a speech by the late Jim Valvano, coach of the 1983 champion North Carolina State University, on YouTube.

To give a little primer, here was a man who was ravaged by cancer, needed assistance to the podium and gave a mind-boggling energetic speech on what is really important in life. Two months after giving the speech he passed away.

Even for the non-basketball fan, this is a must watch.
