Turning the World Upside-Down
Rick Reilly is one of the greatest writers around. For years, he was a regular columnist for Sports Illustrated, and is now a part of ESPN - both as a writer, and as an occasional on-air personality at major events covered by the network (I'd prefer he stick to the writing. He comes across as an arrogant and smug know-it-all on-air).
Reilly writes a weekly column for ESPN The Magazine entitled The Life of Reilly. Equally humorous and poignant, his stories seem to inspire and soften the hardest of hearts.
A recent story about a Texas high school football game is no exception. As much as I'd love to give away the crux of the story, I'd prefer that you read it yourself.
As you'll see, sometimes the greatest blessings come packaged in the most unexpected ways.
