Happy 95th Birthday To Coach John Wooden

Former UCLA hall of fame basketball coach John Wooden turned 95 years old a few days ago on October 14th. I wasn't even born yet and this guy was busy winning ten NCAA championships in basketball. It is a record that IMO will never be broken. ESPN had a great tribute to the coach the last few nights. Click here for the link. I just want to wish coach Wooden a happy birthday myself. He was truly a giant in the world of sports. I have read all his books and met him in person a couple of times. It was a thrill to get to meet him and listen to his timeless wisdom on life and sports. Happy birthday coach from a loyal Bruin fan.
