Touching stories from the NBA Finals

Tonight, the Los Angeles Lakers take on the Orlando Magic in Game One of the NBA Finals in Los Angeles.

There are some emotional sidebar stories.

The Orlando Magic organization has touched the lives of a young autistic child and his family. Watch the ABC video, Orlando provides magic to four-year old. Below that video is another story about the significance of Laker Trevor Ariza's tattoos.

And a great story I have blogged about and talked about on WISN: Derek Fisher of the Lakers is all about his little girl.

Not everything about professional sports is motivated by selfish greed.

Great sports night tonight on TV

You’ve got Brewer baseball.

You’ve got Game 1 of the NBA Finals.

And at 8:30 on Channel 10, you've got a documentary about the best baseball team to ever play in Milwaukee:

Braves New World
Channel 10.1
In 1953, the Boston Braves became the first major league team in 50 years to relocate. They made their home in Milwaukee, and in 13 seasons, they never experienced a losing season. Award-winning documentary producer William Povletich captures the history, drama, excitement, and surprises the Milwaukee Braves had in Milwaukee and the world of baseball. Povletich is a Wisconsin native and UW-Oshkosh graduate. He is also the author of "When the Braves of Bushville Ruled Baseball” for the Wisconsin Magazine of History, and "Milwaukee Braves: Heroes and Heartbreak from the Wisconsin Historical Society Press".

Friday night on InterCHANGE

Here are the topics the panel will discuss on InterCHANGE, Friday night at 6:30 on Milwaukee Public Television Channel 10, with a repeat Sunday morning at 11:00:


One of the icons of American industry files for bankruptcy.  Will General Motors come back stronger, or will the public have lost faith in the brand?  Was it wise for the government to get involved, or should we have let the free market take its course?  Will Washington start to dictate what kinds of cars GM can build?


In a speech in Cairo President Obama reaches out to the Muslim world and attempts to repair relations with Muslims?  Will it work?  Was it necessary?  Was it anything more than just a speech?  Is it important for us to have the Muslim world like us?  Will this drive us farther away from Israel?  Is it realistic to think that closer ties with Muslims will get them to partner with us in the fight against extremist terrorists?  Does Obama want everyone to like us?


Did Judge Charles Clevert make the right decision when he refused to issue an injunction barring Brookfield high schools from holding their graduation ceremonies at Elmbrook Church?  Do the atheists have a point though?   Isn’t this what separation of church and state is all about?

America's failing public school students continue to get worse and worse (or dumb and dumber)

Kevin's favorites


It’s rare to find myself agreeing with the Reverend Al Sharpton, but I think he, sadly, is accurate in the following assessment:

“Today, a public school education is the same as sitting in the back of the bus for black, Latino
