If ever a picture deserved to win many, many awards, it’s this one.

In a related story, I just suffered a horrifying paper cut at my desk, yet was able to bravely finish my workday. Well, after I cried and took a little nap under my desk.

    I love the gritty toughness of Coach Vance: “One of the first things that came to my mind was, ‘Good thing we brought a second javelin.” What a sensitive lad!
