FYI ….. (5/16)
Justin Taylor over at Between Two Worlds (by the way, probably the best Christian blog on the internet—if you could only choose one, this is it), posted two basketball related stories this week. The first one was a follow-up on the amazing story of Jason McElwain I have posted them below, with the original story about J-Mac as well. If you don’t know who he is, watch them in order. And the equally amazing follow-up stories that are remarkable in their own right ….. (if you have a heart, get a tissue).
And then, Taylor posted this related article with a couple of videos and comments highlighting basketball in the movies. No doubt, Hoosiers is one of the best, if not the best, sports movies of all time—I have the original DVD and the special collector’s edition was given to me as a gift last year. I encourage you to read (and watch) the post he put up today, you can do so here: Basketball on the Silver Screen
