Feel good news, for the feel good season from the Sharp Tack, Clarice Feldman, American Thinker:
Rochester, New York: Jason McElwain
The story that brought Jason fame is now several years old but it started recirculating this week, I think because right now we need this reminder of grace and love and hope.
Jason McElwain is autistic. For years he, an avid basketball enthusiast, was manager of his high school’s team. In the very last game of the 2008 season, the coach, Jim Johnson, had Jason suit up and with four minutes left to go in the game signaled him to play.
He missed the two first shots but then as his team’s players and the spectators watched in amazement he made 6 three point shots and a total of 20 points. The gym erupted in joy and Jason went on to celebrity being hosted by President Bush, Oprah, and a number of sporting professionals
For the record, the senior and founding blogger, will neither confirm nor deny that he taught Jason his jump shot. It is far better than mine ever was. Clarice has posted a link to the video.
