With only weeks left to live, Jim Valvano found a way to inspire all who watched his 11-minute speech on the 1993 ESPY’s. His message still holds true today. With that being said, it obviously does not directly pertain to lacrosse, but Jimmy V’s speech should be heard by everyone, not just athletes. Seeing as how Jimmy V Week is coming to a close, I thought it’s something I should put up on the blog.
Don’t feel ashamed if you’re left a little teary-eyed. You’re not the first, nor will you be the last.
