Vlade Divac Documentary about Yugoslavia, the NBA and Drazen Petrovic

14 10 2010

I watched the ESPN 30 for 30 documentary “Once Brothers” the other night.  It is an interesting look into life, culture and basketball in Yugoslavia in the 90’s.  It features the relationship between 2 national team and NBA players (Vlade Divac-Serbian and Drazen Petrovic-Croatian) and how the war divided them after being best friends.

If you are interested in basketball or Yugoslavia, it is pretty interesting.  There is a guy that has posted the documentary in segments on youtube.  This is the first segment (1/8) and you can follow the rest if you’d like.

Inspirational 7 Keys to Life

13 10 2010

The late John Wooden was a great person and a great coach.  There are books and books that highlight his talents and life.  One thing that I’ve come across that I particularly enjoyed was something that came from his dad.  Joshua Wooden gave a young John “7 keys to life” that since reading, I have tried to apply to my own life.

  1. Be true to yourself
  2. Help others
  3. Make each day your masterpiece
  4. Drink deeply from good books – especially the Bible
  5. Make friendship a fine art
  6. Build shelter against a rainy day (faith in God)
  7. Pray for guidance and counsel and give thanks for your blessings each day
