In this shortened casual summer season, we'll be giving you an abbreviated BALL lesson plan. Appropriately enough, we'll be kicking things off with ESPN/SI author and TV personality Rick Reilly's excellent visit with John Wooden. Expect it in your e-mail box early this week...and make sure your parents read it with their kids.
As a bonus to your readings, you might want to pick up Rick's new book, Sports From Hell. I just ordered it on Amazon. I spoke to him about the book. He said that there's nothing in it that's inappropriate for high school kids, but you might want to preview it for your pre-teen. If it's anything like his previous books, we're in for a bunch of late nights with the lights on at the Browne House...
Make each day your masterpiece!
