    Very cool.
    I've missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.

    I enjoyed the music "All the Same" by the Sick Puppies. But as Carbar writes, hugging ain't the same when you're in a wheelchair.

    And I've become quite the germophobe (too many UTIs) and I don't know where that long-haired hippie-lookin' guy or all the people that he's hugged have been or what they may have come in contact with! I'm terrible.

    But it was a cute video.

    I'm surprised the guy didn't get arrested!

    Try doing that outside King's Cross station......

    Awww. That was sweet. That guy was hella tall and how sweet he was to kneel down to those who were short. That little old lady that was first, the little kids. It shows a lot about a person when they do that. Just like when people are talking to me. They can stay standing and talking to me, but I get a stiff neck after a while. Some will kneel down right away to speak to me. Major points if you do that.

    Texas peeps better watch out. I love to hug!!
