Posted by Ralph | 8:39 AM

Well here it is, the 7th week into 2008 and I am putting up the first of this years updates in sports. I have had alot of problems this year on all fronts and am a little bit out of practice but I'll do my best.

Last night's recipient of Extreme Makeover-Home Edition really inspired me to keep rolling on. Patrick Henry Hughes is blind AND in a wheelchair. He also attends the Univ. of Louisville and plays trumpet in the schools marching band. His cumulative GPA is 3.866 and is a full time student and public speaker. You can check out his website here or take a look at this video.

Now to the sports.
