As someone who is immersed in the sports social media sphere on a constant basis, I’ve seen my share of negativity. But, every once in a while you come across stories that make you smile. Today was a good day for them.
If you haven’t heard the saga of the Grambling State football team, you can read the full story of the turmoil here. From coach firings to player boycotts to game forfeit, it’s a program that is long removed from its glory days in the HBCU (Historically Black Colleges and Universities)
At least one company stepped in to help alleviate the lack of resources. Every little bit helps but, let’s hope the school administration figures this out AND other companies step in to help Grambling out.

A video making the rounds today on Twitter is worth your viewing today. It brought tears to this mom’s eyes.
UPDATE: The Dallas Mavericks have joined the fray with this seasonal clip. In case you need a laugh after the tears from above.
