As a 50 year old man, in St. Louis, I can remember watching Lew Alcindor's first varsity basketball game as a very young child.
It was that night that I fell in love with UCLA basketball and first learned about a coach, named John Wooden.
I was very sad when I heard he was quitting coaching basketball in 1975.
As I grew older, I realized what a "teacher" of men Coach Wooden was.
I have read much of his material, and while his death brings me sadness, I find joy in knowing that he is in heaven with his wife, Nell.
My prayers go out to the Wooden and UCLA family. The world has lost a VERY special man, and heaven is an even brighter place tonight.
