Only a few minutes remained in the final A-division championship Gold Medal game at today's Aukake Classic. Kona (in green) is ahead of Hilo (in red) by 2 points.
Here a key Kona player is seen helping his teammate into position.
He leaves to take his own position.
A little while later the Kona player gets knocked to the ground. What happens after that shouldn't have surprised me after years of witnessing Special Olympics athletes and their honest, genuine caring nature, yet it still managed to bring me to tears.
Hilo lost 9 to 7, but I think that you know as well as I do that winning is not what really matters.
I spy... - lavender buds on the lanai... Too bad I won't be able to see them bloom, though Satoshi has "promised" me that he won't kill my plants this time...we'll see.
