“Never give up. Don’t ever give up.”

The ESPY’s are tonight. You probably don’t care. To be honest, I won’t be watching either.

But one of the greatest moments in TV history ever took place on March 3, 1993 (the ESPYs were in March back then), when Jim Valvano accepted the Arthur Ashe Award. Nobody thought he was really going to be able to stand up when he was introduced, much less walk to the podium and give one of the best acceptance speeches ever.

Laugh. Cry. Think. That’s a full day. That’s a heck of a day.

And, above all, never give up. Don’t ever give up.

Watch the video, and consider making a gift to The V Foundation for Cancer Research.
