  • Good thoughts for the "Wizard of Westwood"

    John Wooden ... UCLA's legendary basketball coach, and simply one the greatest men of our time with the way he's still always teaching, and reaching out to people to help them along the way...

    Anyway, he's back in the hospital...the story...

    John Wooden broke his left wrist and collarbone in a fall, leaving the former UCLA men's basketball coach in a hospital Friday.

    Daughter Nan Muehlhausen said the 97-year-old Wooden fell in his condominium Thursday night. She said Wooden was resting comfortably in a hospital and visited with family members throughout the day.
    "Dad's spirits are good," Muehlhausen said in a statement. "He is up and joking around with the family. He will probably be in the hospital for a couple of more days before he goes home."
    Wooden has a hairline fracture in his wrist and a fractured collarbone. He also hit his head, but a CT scan of his head and neck were negative.
    The family didn't release the name of the hospital.
    "We appreciate everyone's concern, but we are requesting that people do not call the hospital and do not try to visit Dad at this time," Muehlhausen said. Wooden coached the Bruins to an unsurpassed 10 NCAA championships in the 1960s and '70s, including consecutive titles from 1967-73. His teams also had an 88-game winning streak.

    Wooden has still been a fixture at Bruin games, and has since become a highly successful motivational writer and speaker.

    How about a few good thoughts, for the "Wizard of Westwood".
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

    Oh wow. I hope he gets well soon. It would be such a shame to lose Wooden.
