Paul Biancardi has been wearing a V pin all week in honor of “Jimmy V Week”, and the ESPN analyst is to be commended for bringing attention to this as well as the great Dick Vitale.
If you are not familiar with the late and great Jim Valvano, then highly encourage you to check out the 30 for 30 documentary “Survive and Advance”. It is a truly inspirational story for basketball and non-basketball lovers alike, and his enthusiasm made him a truly rare person who we were all blessed to have shared this globe with. When got a skeptical date to check the movie out with me she was hesitant at first, but it is the type of narrative that could bring the smarter sex to tears quite quickly and it did several times.
Recently DVRed the movie, so if you have that capability you can probably record it sometime this week and if not then it has to be available somewhere on the internet at this point.
Much thanks to Biancardi for the photo below.

Hoping that Biancardi is calling the Tyus Jones and Jahlil Okafor game Thursday night and if so, then best of luck to him.
That is all for Rant Sports Prep today but thanks for reading, and I’ll leave you with a quotation.
