Some sports stories aren’t about sports at all

Recommended reading for a Saturday morning: John Millea of the Star Tribune wrote a piece today about last night’s New Prague boys’ basketball game against Shakopee. It was the first game for the kids since the death of their coach, Jeff Gravon, who died of cancer. It deserved a more prominent spot than the editors gave it (A stupid feud between some neighbors was somehow judged to be front-page material). Kids can surprise you when you only expect them to act like kids.

Here’s an article from last year on Coach Gravon.

His funeral is being held today.
