A Smatter of Links

16 Mar

Some uplifting clips for your Saturday viewing enjoyment!

I love this article about a Jerry Reid, a 68 year old who not only goes back to college, he joins a fraternity. Rushing the court at basketball games, advocating for more continuing studies courses, joining the debate team–I get a kick out of how he’s providing the campus with “a 20 year old that just has 48 years of experience.”

And this is what I wish sports were more often about.  Mitchell, a team manager for a high school basketball team, is disabled.  Everyone works together for his last game to make sure that he gets a chance to make his shot.

And this last one is just for fun, although I am planning to use it in my language class to help students develop vocabulary.  Instead of “threw the ball” or “shot the basket,” I think we can come up with much more interesting terms, don’t you?
