Yuichiro Miura, an 80 year old from Japan, climbed to the top of Mount Everest on Thursday 5/23/2013.  He is the oldest man to have climbed the Earth's highest mountain.  Miura arrived at the summit with his 9 person team including his 43 year old son.

"This is the best feeling in the world," Miura said on a phone call to his family from the summit. "I never imagined I would become the oldest man to get here, at 80. There's no greater feeling in life, but I've never felt this tired either."

And that's what's good,



What an awesome feeling to be able to throw out the first pitch at a Major League Baseball game. 


Alayna Adams was selected to throw out the first pitch at the Tampa Bay/Boston game to honor her father Lt, Col Will Adams who had been deployed in Afghanistan for the past two years.  What Alayna didn’t know, was that her father was behind the catcher’s mask waiting for her to throw him the ball.  


What a beautiful moment it was when her father caught her pitch and then lifted his mask.  She instantly ran into her father’s arms, which could possibly be the greatest moment this year in sports. 



Have a good day, and let the good news be yours,



Nerlens Noel looks like the clear shot to be the #1 draft pick in this years NBA draft after just one year at the University of Kentucky.  Noel tore his ACL during the year, and during that time he made frequent visits to the Kentucky Children's Hospital in Lexington.  He made friends with a special kid named Kelly Melton, a 7-year old battling Leukemia.  Noel decided he would bring Kelly as a special guest with him to the Kentucky Derby and all of the red carpet events.  You be the judge of who's the sharper dresser here :-)
Have a great day, and let the Good News be Yours,
