Sport is where an entire life can be compressed 
into a few hours, where the emotions of a lifetime
can be felt on an acre or two of ground,
where a person can suffer and die and rise again on six miles of trails
through a New York City park.  
Sport is a theater where sinner can turn saint
and a common man become an uncommon hero,
where the past and the future can fuse with the present. 
Sport is singularly able
to give us peak experiences
where we feel completely one with the world
and transcend all conflicts as we finally become our own potential. 
-George A. Sheehan

I've honestly never met another 10-year old boy who can throw, dribble, or hit a ball as well as this boy can. I know I sound like an insufferable, boasting older sister, but it's true. Mark is a Jack-of-all trades, he's good at everything he tries. Basketball, football, tennis, baseball, ultimate, hockey, you name it and he's done it with success.
I'm dreading the day when he outruns me, I'll never live it down ;)
