The Chicken Runs at Midnight

This is not tied to anything timely or newsy. I just happened to see Yahoo’s Tim Brown tweet it out on Saturday. I had never seen it before, I watched it and then, after crying for an hour, watched it again and now I want all of you to do the same thing too.

It’s a video of long-time major league coach Rich Donnelly talking about his daughter’s battle with a brain tumor which coincided with the 1992 playoffs, when Donnelly coached for the Pirates. Then something else happened during the 1997 World Series, when Donnelly was coaching for the Marlins which brought that back to him. It involves his daughter, Jose Lind and the title of this post in a way that is better watched than described.
