once upon a time, i was a 20-year-old girl who had never heard of john wooden. when i became friends with someone who'd had the good fortune to have been coached by wooden during his years at ucla, i was given a quick and personal education on the extraordinary nature of this man whose name has so frequently and ubiquitously been associated with the title, "greatest coach of all time." i have followed writings, stories and interviews on, with or by wooden ever since and have always found him to be a highly inspirational, perceptive individual. today, i came across this brief clip. it doesn't begin to scrape the surface of the philosophy this man has expounded upon in books and in action, but it's a lovely muse bouche, something to titillate the palate on all that he represents.
