This is Kentucky’s version of “The Blind Side.”
One of my favorite book/movie combos is “The Blind Side,” by Michael Lewis. Michael Oher overcame so much (with the help of a sacrificing family), after having so little as a child.

Smurf Myrks’ story is really an incredible one, and I hope you’ll watch it either online or on WDRB News 10 on Thursday.

Another of my favorites from last year, “Heart Race” is about the real big winner at the Kentucky Derby.
I thought I’d post a few of my favorite stories from 2011 before diving into 2012 with a few big-time features in the next few weeks. First up, “Breathless,” about an unbelievably inspiring guy racing way past the obstacles of cystic fibrosis. You HAVE to check out Chris Saling’s story…
Brian Adams went from the ICU, to UK stud. Check out his story.
Pete Rose was in Louisville on Monday afternoon, and I had a chance to talk with him about the Hall of Fame, collisions at home plate, and the current Cincinnati Reds.

Rajon Rondo was in Louisville on Wednesday for his annual “Rondo Camp” youth basketball function, and he took time to talk about his elbow, the Celtics, UK and the lockout amongst other topics. Click the link above to watch the uncut interview.
