KOH2RVA: Day 194

Shaka SmartDear Readers:

I’m not feeling well today. I think it’s only a cold, but it has me down. I’m going to try to get some rest and feel better soon. In the meantime, let me ask those of you who are able to carry on with our mission of bringing the Kingdom of Heaven to Richmond, Virginia.

A glance at today’s newspaper headline tells me Shaka Smart and the VCU Rams were feeling well enough last night to crush the Akron (Ohio) Zips in the second round of the NCAA tournament’s South Region. I don’t think they were trying to bring the KOH2RVA when they did it, but there was at least one VCU fan in my neighborhood who got pretty excited about the win. I’ll have to think about the connection today, when I’m feeling a little better, but as I recall it was just last Sunday that Chris Harris (who leads the Upward Basketball program at First Baptist Church) assured the congregation: “You can bring heaven to earth with a basketball.”  Maybe he’s right about that.

Thanks for reading,

Jim
