From the archives: Don't Ever Give Up

I won't be posting a lot of serious content on thecoughingdog but after watching the Georgetown game on ESPN tonight, they replayed Jim Valvano's memorable speech from the 1993 ESPY Awards. Sick with bone cancer and noticeably exhausted, Jimmy V spoke of the need to live life with emotion and the importance of making each day a "full day." Jimmy V died 8 weeks after this classically inspiring speech.


  1. Great video...thanks for posting.

  2. Yes, many thanks to Snipes for posting this, tough not to get emotional because of it. He was a great man and his foundation is doing great things for cancer research. If you want to donate you can go to
