This isn't exactly news to anyone that knows me ... heck, I've somewhat finally made it at least a part of my career and I couldn't be happier. This video here - while not comprehensive - is a damn great example of some of the very best "Greatest Moments in Sports" -- the fact that you may feel something was left out only goes to prove how truly great sports can be.
(But ... where is Steve Young's 49-yard run against the Vikings? Roger Craig high kneeing Los Angeles Rams to the ground? Where is Derek Sanderson Jeter's backflip throw to home plate to get out Jeremy Giambi? The list can and should go on...)
Predictably, there's a LOT of Muhammed Ali, Michael Jordan and others who are clearly the greatest.
For what it's worth, the one that STILL gets me, each and every time, is the father helping his son across the finish line in the Olympics. That and Drew Brees and his son collecting the confetti, each awestruck in his own way, after the Super Bowl ... yep, being a dad makes me a softie.
Yesterday, I posted the most awesome Bob Ross video in the history of Bob Ross videos ... but if you know me at all, you know that nobody rocked it like Mister Rogers did back in the day. And it appears that PBS Digital Studios is just re-inventing the internet - they did the Ross video, and now here they are with a Mister Rogers one and holy holy holy shit...
This is so great ... I really have almost no words. It's good to be curious, about many things ...
It's worth noting that I post half the stuff here solely so I can come back and rewatch it on my own time. This is definitely one that will get a LOT of replay.
Mister Fred Effin Rogers FTW.
I saw this posted a few times on Twitter, such as here:
My god. RT
@mckennaconor: This Bob Ross remix is the most awesome thing you'll ever see. He was so awesome. youtu.be/YLO7tCdBVrA

Still, I hadn't had a chance to click on it but ... my goodness, this is amazing, surreal and weirdly powerful. Bob Ross was a weirdo, to be sure, but a passionate guy who LOVED what he did. That comes through here in a fantastic way:
Is it "the most awesome thing you'll ever see" per the tweet above? Of course not. But it's pretty damn great.
Happy Little Clouds, indeed.
RIF! Reading, It's Fundamental.
