Here's another article supporting
Shane Battier for Player Of The Year, this time from CBS Sportsline.
Aside from all his other accomplishments, Shane actually preached some at his
home church this summer. His minister says he'd be a natural.
Battier tried to crack some jokes in his sermons, but, like Garrison Keillor,
finds the Lutherans a somewhat frosty branch.
He also talks about having a Black father and a White mother and how while
other people stared and whispered, he saw it as a blessing and used it as a
positive. We're going to really, really miss this guy when he's gone.
There are also some comments about how Quin is crafting a close-knit team at
Mizzou. Most interesting.
