Everyone wishes they could have a day off on the Monday after the Super Bowl.
Mater Dei School in Maryland decided to make things interesting. They told all of the students that they could have Monday off if and only if a first grader made a free throw shot.
Blake Harper stepped up to the free throw line and threw the ball in the air. The whole crowd of students held their breath.
The teachers were probably thinking that this ball would never go in the hoop….but it did :)
Watch the awesome clip and check out the crowd's reaction!
And that's what's good,

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith lost his 19-year-old brother earlier this year in a motorcycle accident.
24 hrs later, despite permission by coach Harbaugh to sit out the game, Smith put in one of the NFL’s most
inspirational individual performances. He caught six passes for 127 yards and two touchdowns, and was awarded
the 2012 NFL Never Say Never Moment of the Year. This award represents determination and perseverance, which
Torrey showed all year by helping lead his team to a victory last night in Super Bowl XLVII against the 49ers.
For Torrey, of course nothing can take the pain away of losing a brother, but winning the Super Bowl can give him and his
family a reason to celebrate.
Congratulations to Torrey Smith and the Baltimore Ravens on an outstanding year.

50 year old Miami Heat fan, Michael Drysch, did the unimaginable. He was given the opportunity to shoot a half court shot at the game.....and nailed it! Michael got to go home with $75,000 cash and a very memorable bear hug from "King James" himself.
“That was awesome, man,” LeBron James said in an ESPN interview. “I was excited for him. When he wound up like that, I was like, ‘Oh no, there’s no way.’ And then when I saw it in the air, I was like, ‘Oh, that’s got a chance.’ I was happy to be a part of that.”
“It’s a great way to meet somebody like that,” Michael Drysch said. “I had no idea he was coming over to me like that. That was amazing. What a great feeling to experience something like this.”

Peace & Love,
