While it seems like most of you are allergic to the "like" button, I just want to personally say thanks for looking anyway.
What a GREAT, GREAT MAN!
Thanks coach for ALL you did!
ESPN Classic has been showing classic Bruins games and interviews with Coach Wooden. He was one of a kind.
A poem written by Swen Nater for John Wooden, which Wooden had recited in interviews:
Once I was afraid of dying,
terrified of ever-lying,
petrified of leaving family, home and friends.
Thoughts of absence from my dear ones,
brought a melancholy tear once,
and a dreadful fear of when life ends.
But those days are long behind me,
fear of leaving does not bind me,
and departure does not hold a single care.
Peace does comfort as I ponder,
a reunion in the yonder,
with my dearest one who is waiting for me there.
Bless you Coach - your thoughts on leadership will be an inspiration for many many lifetimes.
