Why Sports Are Great

You’ve probably seen this by now, but I’ll risk an obvious post for this story. An autistic kid served as his high school basketball team’s manager for several years. It was a great job for him, as he loved basketball and loved being around it. In the last game of the season, the decided to reward the young man’s hard work by letting him suit up. With four minutes left in the game, which was already decided, the coach decided to send him in. All of his teammates tried to get him some points, but he missed his first two tries. Then, he got “hot as a pistol.” One after another, shots started falling until he had hit six consecutive three-pointers and scored 20 points. Watch the clip. Trust me.
