3/11/14 – Day +62

Scot Pollard – for all my KU friends.  Why is this significant?  He was a lunch pail guy.  A guy with MOXIE.  I remember my high school basketball team.  I wasn’t the most talented – but I hustled.  I remember sophomore year – Coach Galbraith said I had a lot of MOXIE.  Sometimes you have limitations.  In the high school state championship game I played about three minutes and the only thing that distinguished me on the court was that a rebound fell on my head.  But I had MOXIE.  I hustled.

Myeloma is certainly something that you can allow to limit you but you gotta fight through it.  MOXIE – force of character, determination, nerve.  That’s what it takes sometimes.  Overcome it. Beat it.  WIN.

Scot Pollard – good ol’ number 62 – had it.  He turned 4.4 points per game and 4.6 rebounds per game into an 11 year NBA career.  Scot Pollard – 2007-2008 NBA Champion with the Boston Celtics.  MOXIE.  My kind of player.

  1. Brad,

    You are so right.

    It is also true in business life too. That Is, that if you are willing to give like that, you will win.

    That’s exactly my story.

    Keep up fighting the good fight.
