Boy, you're just spreading sunshine far and wide this morning. I'm not sure whether to be more freaked out by my lost youth or remembering the days we thought our leaders had integrity or that as I type this I may be suffering from a deadly undiagnosed condition.

Must you be a typical liberal and only write about the bad news?

Just kidding! Trying to make you smile! C'mon! It's spring.

I wonder if Bobby Knight and Mike Krzyzewski worried about the future of their student-athletes when they coached at Army.

I use that phrase because it may be more true at the Academies than anywhere else in Division One sports.

It's not just basketball or West Point, although I see your point. I was at SF Giant's Opening Day last week and saw a whole ship of seamen at the game and knew it would be their last. I almost cried. I wanted to grab one of them and hug them and say don't go, but I didn't.

Such a very sad story about Maggie Dixon. My son's girlfriend coaches women's college basketball and knew Maggie quite well. We were just discussiing Maggie and what a great job she did at West Point. She received many honors at the end of the season. I'm happy she knew how much she was appreciated by her peers and players. But such a sad ending to her story.

I went to school with Kim Mulkey, quoted in one of those articles. Watched her win the championship back then (82?). I have a similar heart condition, which I mostly ignore, so I read this with interest.

She got carried off the court by her joyous team amidst cheering fans on the occassion of Army's first conference championship, which gave them their first NCAA bid.

For a born coach, as she seemed to be, it doesn't get much better.

It's easy to say good things about her life; I'm reaching to say something good about her death, but I can't. Probably because there isn't anything good about it.
