👋 Good morning! I'd like to give a shoutout to all the "Why we love sports" stories. They've touched so many people, and some really cool things have happened behind the scenes that make me extremely proud of this community. A few examples:
- Example 1: Nate's story about his grandfather's love for Notre Dame QB Johnny Lujack made its way to the Lujack family, who asked to be put in touch with Nate.
- Example 2: After one reader shared how the Yankees helped him bond with his father, another reader asked for his address so he could send him a framed photograph of Yankee Stadium just because.
- Example 3: Phoebe's story about her experience with bipolar disorder struck a chord with another reader who was recently diagnosed, and I put them in touch.
🎂 And here's a message from one reader to another: "Here's a very special birthday shoutout to Connecticut's golden boy, Spencer Lovejoy. Cheers!" - From Lolita
