Do Good Things And Good Things Happen
You might have seen this on SportsCenter the other day. There's a guy who's been a back-up kicker for the University of Minnesota football team for the past three seasons. And he's never played in a game. He's famous at a nearby children's hospital though, because he's there all the time hanging out with kids.
So last week, the team's new coach surprised him by bringing one of the kids in during a team meeting. The kid talked about the challenges he's faced because of a rare bone marrow disease he has. He also talked about this football player, and how he sees him at the hospital more than any other player. Then the coach had this kid shoot a new T-shirt cannon they got. And he shot a shirt to the player near the back of the room, and he caught it. And when he unrolled it, there was a message on the front that said he was getting a FULL SCHOLARSHIP for his senior year.
His reaction was great. His teammates' reaction was even better.
