The other week, I was video chatting with Moya B. and the subject of football came up. I tried to explain to MB why I loved sports, and football in particular. I'm working on that blog--it'll be up next week, I hope--but I thought I'd post these videos in the meantime.
Last month, USC head football coach Pete Carroll tracked down Bill Withers, and invited him to a team meeting. Withers posed as an NCAA official before notifying the players who he really was. It was cool to see/hear their recognition. It was even cooler to see the team come together and sing the song in front of Withers.
I've posted the video chronologically. The first was filmed in August 9th, and shows a snippet of the team singing the song. The second is the one I described above.
Sports, teamwork can be really powerful. I wish I/we could implement some of the things we learn from being on a sports team in real life.
