That's not my world. My world was a cracked sidewalk." —Al McGuire

Hoops for the Soul: Remembering Coach Al

I am a sucker for Al McGuire retrospectives, and Chris Maynard at Hoops4theSoul filed a terrific post yesterday (which happened to be Jerome Whitehead's 51st birthday).

“I want to keep the pulse of the parking-lot attendant—the country club or golf course is not where it’s at. The pulse is on the cracked sidewalks. If you lose that, life’s not worth living. As a person, I hope I never change.”
Thanks for the nostalgic rush, Chris.
