My morning smile

Dear Internets,

This story made my morning (it's an old story apparently, but I missed it the first time):



Love,
Jane

P.S. For those of you who can't watch YouTube, here's a link to the Wikipedia article.
P.P.S. Wikipedia? I really must be living under a rock.

Hello.... are you under there?

The thing that always got me about that story was the rest of the students... how TRULY excited they are about Jason...

BTW... Jason was in the new Gatorade commercial that aired during the Super Bowl.

Liam said...

There were questions about his eligibility I believe... Since he didn't have a standard academic curriculum...

If you were wondering, I'm crying in my office...I have to wipe the tears away before anyone sees them...I don't want to be known as the girl that cries!
