Rest in Peace, Coach Summitt

It is a sad day for women's basketball today because Coach Pat Summitt succumbed to Alzheimers. I became a fan after seeing a segment about her on Sixty Minutes. That icy glare from the court side would have been enough to freeze me in my tracks. I cheered for the Lady Vols every year after that as well as my Lady Aggies. The only time I don't root for the Lady Vols is when they play my Lady Aggies. My sincerest condolences and prayers are for her family and close friends. Rest in peace, Coach.

One final note to add since you know I keep a positive attitude. This one negative statement must be made: I hate Alzheimers, and I hate cancer.
