We saw the story Jeff Capel wrote about his father’s ALS diagnosis this afternoon but didn’t have time to read it carefully so we came back to it later.
If you haven’t read it you really should. It’s moving as you might expect, given that he’s writing about his father and reflecting on his family and his father’s legacy and also coming to terms with his looming death.
So you’d expect it to resonate and it does.
What we didn’t fully appreciate was just how well written it was.
It’s a minor concern in the big picture, but Capel wrote with eloquence and grace.
And for anyone who is upset about the season, it’s a good reality check. Capel is under a ton of pressure on the court, but it’s nothing compared to what he’s dealing with off it.
