Yes, an amazing story, starting with two 13-year-old parents who are now newly married at 36. As with many of these feel-good stories, one hopes that they remain feel-good stories. Best to remember them as they have been told without delving too much into future developments.

I don't watch the NBA, but I'm a Donovan Mitchell fan now.

This weekend is cut day in the NFL. A lot of dreams get realized, shattered, or delayed today. But here is one good story. Efe Obada made the last cut for the Panthers. A Nigerian kid abandoned in the streets of London after arriving from Holland. The 1st player from the NFL's International Pathways Program to make a roster.

Wow. That is simply mind blowing. There is so much pointless bickering, arguing and insulting each other in this world every second of every day that it is SO refreshing to read something heartwarming instead of heartbreaking.

Cam's TD ball giveaway is one of the best celebrations in sports.

Couldn't find this thread. Thought it had been blocked. I didn't realize this had been made a sticky. I was about to fuss, lol.

Heh, yeah, maybe I should have posted that I stickied it. It has such great stories in it that I felt it didn't deserve to ever get lost. So much of the boards are about negativity that it's nice to see such a positive thread.

Efe received a game ball today after being activated for his 1st game & recording his 1st career sack & INT. Highlights.

Why is this story here? Because it made me feel good after a day that had turned sour beginning with visiting a certain thread here and viewing leakage from O.T., followed by a tumultuous commute home, by the end of which there was ranting and raving.

What a wonderful world we live in that gentle characters like this guy can be allowed to fulfill their lives doing something harmless, maybe even pointless, but obviously of great joy to him.

What a great sport, baseball, in which satisfaction can be had just by charting the course of a game in a box score. Game after game, year after year.

What a great Yankees fan. He made me feel better. God bless him.

She wants to throw out the first pitch in every MLB stadium. She is well on her way. Sometimes MLB gets things right.

Although it's an advertisement, you can't help but feel good about what they did for that team.

Maybe this isn't a "feel good" story, but it made me feel good. I've always felt Petrino is w/o a doubt one of college football's lowest life forms. I remember when this underhanded choice by L'ville happened. Nice to see some form of karma exists in the universe.

This is a really good sports story! It's nice to know that such people remain in demand.
