Ain't nothing wrong with a man crying. This machismo bulls**t has got to go.
Anyway, John Wooden has positively shaped many lives and is a man to be revered.
I agree 100%.
I saw that John Wooden special and that made me cry. The guy seems like one of the true "good guys" in this world who genuinely cares about other people. And to see his devotion to his wife, I could only wish to be so gifted as him (I mean as far as his personal characteristics, not his basketball feats).
One of these days I'll get some posters of some of his great quotes.
