A heartwarming story for your Saturday reading …
A man named Dan Coyne in Chicago had inquired about a cashier at the grocery store he shopped in. The cashier, Myra de la Vega, said she had been ill recently, having been diagnosed with renal failure and in need of a new kidney.
So Coyne offered his, and Friday, this man who only knew her from the grocery store donated his kidney to help save and preserve his life.
It’s a beautiful story of human unselfishness, and it’s just a small reminder of the miracles that happen every day in this world.
***Whew. Still a little drained from that Duke-Purdue game late Friday night. Absolutely brutal first half by my Blue Devils, but they got it together in the second half, shot MUCH better, and slowly pulled away.
Couple thing on this game: 1, This is absolutely a game Duke would’ve lost the last few years. This year’s team is tougher and bigger. 2, Jon Scheyer still couldn’t hit an outside shot, but he found a way to score, driving and willing his way to the basket. Loved Nolan Smith in the second half, and Kyle Singler the whole game.
Still, an atrocious first half. And Baylor looked really, really good in the first game. Duke-Baylor Sunday at 5 p.m. Commence worrying now.
Also, how good is Michigan State? Tremendous win for them over the last Cinderella left in the tournament, Northern Iowa.
