    John Wooden Hospitalized

    Apparently in "grave" condition. Very very sad. Greatest coach ever, even a better person. Some reports even say he's passed away. Terrible news.

    It's hard to imagine someone living a more full life than John Wooden.

    I don't know if I consider dying peacefully at age 99 very, very sad. I'd consider it a blessing.

    I suppose you love Barry Bonds, Tim Donaghy and Floyd Landis, too?

    I know the last interview I saw with him, he looked and sounded ready and at peace.

    Well, if you look at it that way, yes. Just a sad day for athletics though, IMO, if this is true.
