John Wooden 1910 – 2010

Indulge me for a second while I pay a brief tribute to an exceptional man.

John Wooden passed away today. His career as the head basketball coach of UCLA is the stuff of legend, but more to his credit is the manner in which he conducted his life and the impact that he had not only on those he coached but countless others who listened and learned the lessons he imparted.

We manage to produce precious few Coach Woodens, so his passing is especially poignant. I just want to tip my hat to a man who led an exemplary life and left a special legacy.
