Honor & Sportsmanship

Despite how many basketball games I attended in high school, it is not a game close to my heart. But the story of a basketball game between players from Madison High School in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and DeKalb, Illinois High School tugged at my heart. In the swirl of media coverage over illegal steroid use by extraordinarily high paid professional athletes such as Alex Rodriguez, a bunch of high school kids and their coaches held the moral compass to true north. A-Rod and all of his ilk should read this moving report from Art Kabelowsky on a daily basis.

Thanks to Rachel Maddow for her coverage of this story.
