Josh Hamilton has battled drugs and alcohol. So when the Texas Rangers celebrated their first ever playoff series win, they did it with Ginger Ale so Josh could celebrate, too. picked by icepigs 2 months ago

I thought that was a great f-ing story. JH had some serious issues and even a relapse during his big league career.

Coming from a home of alchoholics and drug abusers, stories of salvation and life turning events really hits home with me.

And being a f-ing sports junkie stories like this really tug at my heartstrings...

His HR derby performance was one for the ages...i remember that over who won any of the last 10 years...

Seems like a great guy, who got dealt a bad hand to begin with but still took the pot.

In a related story, several NBA teams said they'll keep firearms and prostitutes away from their celebrations next year.

I don't know anything about sports but I loved this story! Just when you think people couldn't dissapoint you any more than they do, they do something so thoughtful and gracious...

"Just when you'd think they [people] were more malignant than ever Hell could be, they could occasionally show more grace than Heaven ever dreamed of. Often the same individual was involved. It was this freewill thing, of course. It was a bugger."

With so many horrible headlines in sports news, it's nice to read something that is uplifting rather than degrading.

So we're praising the team for doing a simple thing that anyone would have and has done?

They doused him with ginger ale instead of champagne.

wow.

Next we'll hear about a guy who held open a big heavy door for an 90-year old woman.

I am sure most of us have had a co-worker or friend that had a drinking/drug problem so changed our behavior to support him. Simple things such as not having alcohol at a Christmas party.

Stories where the fellow workers pay for a team member's rehab, where all the employees shave their head because one their fellow workers has cancer. Those are commendable things. Behaving like a human just isn't that impressive.
