The Optimists Creed

This week's edition of Sports Illustrated has a great feature on the Diener family - The First Family of Basketball in Wisconsin. It features heavily on current senior PG, Travis Diener of Marquette. Pick up a copy as it is a great read on the Diener family.

One portion of the story that struck me was that of The Optimists Creed adhered to by "Grandma Diener". Great words to live by:

Promise Yourself -- To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble. ---The Optimists Creed, 1922

Travis certainly has some real babes for sisters. Bring em on for the SLU game in March to give Travis a real send-off! Seriously, lets go MU!!
