Was on ESPN a bit ago and found this story on their front page:
Turns out, there are seven or eight of these stories, and alot of them are pretty heartwarming. (The links are on the right hand side of the story.)
I especially recommend the first one, featuring Dwight Howard as "Dr. Giggles", cheering up ill children in an Orlando area hospital. It's a great story and really puts the side of players that you don't normally see into focus.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone here at Golden State of Mind
