Awesome Sports Stories Vol. 3

Sorry I haven't been around in a while. School and everything is weighing down pretty hard. I should be getting back into the swing of things soon.

This has been around for a bit but I watched this video again and it really touched my heart. The sportsmanship shown is amazing. It's a bit long but check it out. It's a great story.

This story gave me shivers, Ryan, and I'm drying tears - haven't seen this before. Thanks Ryan, and hang in there. Praying things get easier for you soon.

Helen said...

Wow, that is an amazing story.

Ryan, just take care of whatever you need to. We will still be here when you get back. :-)

Nick the Geek said...

Yep you gotta love school and stuff.

Maybe we should go pick you up and carry you around. :) OK seriously I believe that the church should do such. Jesus said that we are to give Him our burdens and take on us His burden, but remember that the church is the body of Christ and so we are called to corporately lift others up when things are weighing them down.

I'm just sayin'.

What a beautiful story Nick. I'm typing through my tears. I'm gonna' send this on to some kids still in sports (mainly for their PARENTS to see the beautiful demonstration of good sportsmanship.

The lessons crosses over the sports theme though, just as Nick said.

That is awesome lesson in sportsmanship. I'm going to show this to my high school volleyball team and hopefully they will see why I push sportsmanship so hard. Thanks for that one Nick.

Helen said...

Why is everyone thanking Nick for Ryan's post?

Annie K said...

Oooops! THANKS RYAN!!!!!!!

(and thanks Helen for pointing out the mistake and keeping us straight. Must be because we're all choked up now...)

sherri said...

Sorry- RYAN, I thank YOU, NOT NICK!
Nick gave a good illustration, but THANK YOU RYAN for the video.

Okay, tears here, too! Good story!

Thanks Ryan. Keep working at school. There's just times of year where it gets to be crunch time.
