Hurley goes into the Hall. And a bumper sticker that cracked me up

**We are experiencing technical difficulties here at WWOS. Not sure what the heck happened to all the stuff that used to be down the right side of the page. Trying to fix it now. Sorry.

One of the greatest coaches and leaders of young men in basketball history was inducted into the Hall of Fame the other night.

Bob Hurley’s praises have been sung by me and by many others over the years; the legendary high school coach at St. Anthony’s (N.J.) has won nearly 1,000 games, but has touched so many more lives. It’s a long overdue honor for a wonderful person and a credit to his sport.

Check out this column by Jack McCallum, the supremely talented Sports Illustrated writer, on Hurley and his legacy. And if you ever get a chance, check out the outstanding book “The Miracle of St. Anthony” by Adrian Wojnarowski. It’s fantatastic.

**I love a good bumper sticker, even ones that offend me or make me angry. I think there’s something so simple, and so American, about believing a statement so strongly that you need to place it on the back of your car and show the world that’s how you feel.

I don’t agree with the sentiment on this one, but this cracked me up for good 10 seconds when I saw it the other day.
