A brave 11-year-old stands up to bullying. A Seattle Seahawks player like none you’ve ever seen. And 5 minutes of awesome movie dancing

And a Happy Friday to you all; we start this week’s Good News Friday with a very brave little boy.

Caine Smith is 11 years old, has long hair, and is being raised by two moms. He recently was the star of this wonderful video from a group called The Bully Project, which raises awareness of the chronic problem.

It’s only a three-minute clip, but what Caine does at the end takes all kinds of bravery if you ask me.

**Next up, this made me all kinds of happy. One of those People Who Make Cool Internet Videos has put together a 5-minute compilation of awesome dancing scenes in movies. And as an added bonus, it’s set to the 1980s classic “Safety Dance” by Men Without Hats!

**And finally, I’m pretty psyched for this Sunday’s NFC and AFC championship games. Both the Patriots-Broncos game at 3 p.m. and the Niners-Seahawks game at 6:30 pm. should be terrific.

One player on the field you probably won’t hear much about is Derrick Coleman, the Seahawks’ fullback. Fullbacks rarely get attention in the NFL, because they hardly touch the ball.

But Coleman has made his mark on the NFL’s best team this year while being deaf, the first offensive player in the NFL with that impairment.

Check out this fantastic commercial from Duracell, with Coleman’s voice-over, and tell me you don’t get chills…

  1. Wonder if you can name all those movies. I recognized most of them. Speaking of dancing. Here is the great Fred Astaire.
