The_Captain wrote: Best sports moment - Happened when I was coaching a 6th grade parks and rec basketball team for the City of Mesquite about 9 years ago. I had a kid on my team named Zach who tried hard every game but was learning disabled (couldn't tell the difference between offense/defense). The last game of the season, we were down 10 - 0 so I called a timeout and drew up a play knowing the other team figured out about Zach's abilities but left him alone at the side of the key. I told my point guard to get the ball to Zach (who was a good shooter). When he passed Zach the ball, I was screaming "SHOOT" from the sidelines and I watched Zach score our first two points. He ran down the court waving his arms in the air and jumping up and down. I watched his parents and grandparents leap up off their seats and cheer for him. I sat down, with tears in my eyes, knowing this what is was all about.

Awsome Cap. Seriously Awsome. ;-D ;-D

Agree with balanced, that is a great story. ;-D ;-D ;-D ;-D
Thanks to deluxe_247 for the awesome sig.

Real Name: Michael

Age: 35

Status: Single

Offspring: N

Pets: Doberman Pinscher

Place of Residence: Chicago Burbs

Occupation: Warehouse Manager

Unattainable dream job: WPT tour player

Attainable dream job: If it's a dream job it's not attainable.

Places I want to visit before I'm older: Every place I can. Seeing the planet is got to be the coolest thing someone can do.

Hobbies and interests: Obviously football (fantasy or otherwise), playing Hold 'Em, horsehoes

Best sports moment: Watching the Chicago Bears destroy everything in their path en route to the Superbowl

Worst sports moment: Breaking my finger and my collarbone in a single play during a tackle football game in the park.

How I ended up here: Honestly can't remember. Random internet search for FF I guess.

Favorite Cafe Feature: The wealth of knowledge of the rest of you guys.

Cafe pet peeve: I guess just that some people take themselves and other things way too seriously sometimes, and arguments that end (or start with) personal attacks. Just because someone's opinion differs from your own doesn't make them wrong, and there is never an excuse to start name-calling.

Little Known Fact: 111,111,111 x 111,111,111 = 12,345,678,987,654,321
