    Happy Birthday To "The Wizard of Westwood"

    Happy birthday, to legendary basketball coach, motivational speaker, and author John Wooden, who is 99 years old today.

    I chose this forum, because his reach and impact so transcends the world of college basketball, and ten NCAA titles at UCLA.

    He was born in Indiana on this day in the year 1910, and has kept true to his essentially midwestern values even after all these years on the west coast.

    Here's a look at his life, from today's (10/14) LA Times.

    He is one of the finest men I've ever had the chance to meet and interview.

    The world is a far better place, for having John Wooden be a part of it.

    Happy birthday Coach!
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
