Re: Pat Summitt Diagnosed with Dementia
This is just awful news. All sports fans should admire this woman for what she's done for her sport, and college athletics in general. It's awful enough that she's suffering from an illness that can't be cured, but for it to be an illness of the mind... that's even more awful. To listen to her sit there and talk about forgetting schemes and such, that was tough to take, and I'm not even particularly a fan of women's basketball. I wish her all the best, but I'm not sure how much longer she can hold on at UT. I hope it's for several more years, but in reality this coming year is probably her last. The stress from the position will only make the disease more aggressive.
