A father who taught toughness. A son who's learning what it means.

This is not particularly relevant to my day today, nor is it the tweet that I’m wishing to share so much as the article linked in the tweet.
I am a Duke grad and a diehard Duke basketball fan. As you may know, Jeff Capel is filling in for the legendary Coach K while he recovers from back surgery. And, while Coach Capel has been in that role, Duke has struggled a bit. But, if you read Coach Capel’s story about his father and his relationship with his father and brother, it’s hard not to gain some perspective on what’s really important. Should you choose to read the article, I recommend you have some tissues handy.
(Also, if you’re a sports fan and/or interested in good personal narratives, The Players Tribune is pretty fantastic.)
