A good friend of mine has been battling cancer the last 4-5 years and was recently diagnosed with leukemia. He has four kids ranging from 8 to 13. He just has been hit with bad news quite a bit in the last few weeks.

The Rockets gave us tickets to last night's game. His daughter had never been to a Rockets game and loved it. They were just grinning from ear to ear all night and seemed to forget their problems. They even caught one of the C&D Scrap Metal Rockets hats late in the game.

But late in the first quarter, Rockets director of Marketing Ken Sheirr came out to our seats and brought him a Luis Scola jersey signed by Luis (his favorite player). He was floored by it and his daughter kept the jersey on all night -- just a class move by a class organization. Ken hung out with us for a quarter and talked about the team. It was awesome.



Anyway, I just want to say thanks for what they did -- the whole experience was very special for them.

That is great to hear. I'm glad that the organization is always reaching out to those that need it, whether it is financially or emotionally, it is wonderful reading stories like these.

Good luck to your friend, I hope he is able to fight off the disease.
