Daily Inspiration

Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday I wake up at 6am to get schooled on the basketball court by a man who has multiple sclerosis and is almost 20 years my senior. No, I'm not kidding -- and I'm not just saying nice things about him because of his developing condition.

The guy is an animal. We're on the same church league basketball team and he's among the league leaders in points, assists and free-throw percentage. The dude drops threes like they were free throws and he pushes the ball up the floor like he was being chased by Warren Sapp.

Guys like him just get me fired up about life and help me to avoid making excuses when I'm tired or frustrated.

Who inspires you?
