What with the World Cup going on and the ensuing national pride for everyone the world over and it being the 4th of July for us Americans... I was reminded of this layout which I had started--don't laugh--back during the Winter Olympics when we were all chatting about knowing people actually competing at the games! Again... that national pride thing. Yay! Soooooooo, anyways, this morning, I decided it was time to post this! *grin*
Yes, this is my brother and, yes, he's 10,000 feet off the ground! And, yes, he represented our beautiful country years ago. Yes, he really is deaf, too. And, yep... I love and admire him so very much!


JOURNALING
It still amazes me (and makes me SO proud) to think that Brian played for the U.S. National team... the NATIONAL team! Look at it... USA on their jerseys! Following a fantastic college career at Pepperdine where he was a two-time All-American (’78, ‘79), he played in the World University Games and on Olympic Festival and Jr. National teams. Brian was on the ‘8O and ’84 Olympic team roster, but sadly the U.S. didn’t qualify those years. But, still... what an incredible honor. Oh, did I mention he’s deaf? Like, wow.
