just a hint . . .

It is one of the rules on Fodors that when one posts a link to a site, you need to include at least some info about it/the source. Many people, rightfully, are reluctant to click on a "blind url".

The editors have been known to delete posts w/ just a URL and nothing else.

(even w/ espn in the url - we have no idea what we'd get into . . . . )

Thanks.

It's a story by Rick Reilly (a sports reporter) on a high school football game that took place a couple weeks ago.

I'm a sports fan, have been for years, and have read many a touching story, but this one was quite special and unique (also true).
