    GE TODville.

    Thanks NerdyW. for posting another commitment fulfilled by President Obama and his team of DEMOCRATS (if Dems weren’t the majority on the FCC Board, this important helping hand to provide internet access to those who need it most would not have happened.

    More progress…

    “INDIANAPOLIS – This love story, both a human love story and a basketball love story, began with a hat. Yes, this is an unusual love story, the one that starts with the hat, so follow along. A young man named Ben Teh was 12 years old and living in New Zealand when he went to Los Angeles to visit Disneyland on a family vacation. While he was there, he noticed a sporting goods store across the street. The place was filled with the hats of all the marquee American sports franchises, notably the Chicago Bulls and the New York Yankees. But Teh didn’t want to be like everybody else, wearing one of those hats, so he looked around. And then he saw it: An Indiana Pacers hat. “It was the only Pacers hat left in the whole store”…That, then, is how a Kiwi who grew up on rugby, Aussie Rules Football and cricket became a crazed Indiana Pacers fan. He would play the NBA ’98 video game and always pick the Pacers as his team. He would watch them during the rare ESPN game when they were shown. When Pacers games come on TV in Australia, it’s usually 9 or 10 in the morning. “I try to work from home those days,”Teh said.

    These days, he’s a huge Paul George fan. “And George Hill, the whole hometown hero thing,” Ben said. “It’s weird that I have this huge draw to Indiana. And for no real reason.”Because of a hat, a lonely hat in a Los Angeles sporting goods store.”She (Malinda) thinks I’m crazy,” Ben said later, sitting with his wife on the Pacers’ bench during pre-game warm-ups Tuesday. For confirmation, I turn to Malinda. “He is crazy,’’ she said, laughing. This is how crazy: The couple were married in 2015 and have just gotten around to taking a honeymoon. They hoped to spend five weeks traveling throughout the U.S., spending time in New York, New Orleans and other locales. Instead, they spent two days in San Francisco and then came out to Indianapolis, where they’ve spent five days and have now attended two home Pacers’ games. This, naturally, raised a question, one I posed to Malinda: “What did you think when he said he wanted to spend a good portion of your honeymoon in Indianapolis? “Malinda looked me straight in the eye and said this: “Because of all he’s done for me. I wanted to do this for him. He moved to Sydney to be with me. I just want to see him happy.”

    This is where it stops being a basketball love story, at least for a minute, and starts being a true human love story. Because Malinda, who Ben fell in love with the minute he saw her at a Melbourne bar, was also quite ill. She was suffering, and continues to suffer, with Stage 4 breast cancer. The cancer has spread to her back and her legs. The prognosis is as dim as one might expect. But Ben didn’t care. Not a bit. He asked her to marry him, and she said yes. He asked her knowing all the while she might not be in his life for very long. And yet, there was never a moment’s hesitation. Not one….continued”

      LP.
      Thank you. This is so heart warmingly beautiful.
      I would love to see a movie about this.
      Love in the purest form is so beautiful. So innocent. So kind and gentle.
      This is “crazy love.”

      LP Couldn’t get this to play. It shows only for UK. ?? Can someone post it so it can be watched on this site. thanks

      • April 1, 2016 at 9:12 am

        Roberta, I had originally been able to post the link from YouTube, but due to copyright restrictions, the videos have been removed. The only way you can get to it is to subscribe to a third party provider or purchase it out right from the BBC site.

      • April 1, 2016 at 12:15 pm

        Here it is, Roberta 🙂 You better watch within the next few days b/c youtube will take it down (as they did for episode 1 & 2)

        I’m trying to reach out to BBC America to see if they plan on airing it the U.S. after the last episode airs in the U.K. If you are technologically proficient…there are many IP ghosting services that are available (you could make your US IP address [which is recognized when you try to play the BBC link] a British one) and then be able to watch all three episodes (assuming you haven’t seen the first two)-hope that helps 😕
