    While it seems like most of you are allergic to the "like" button, I just want to personally say thanks for looking anyway.

    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.
