Pat Summitt: Classy Quitter

Pat Summitt (via Minnesota Public Radio)

I hesitate to use the word "quitter" when talking about Pat Summitt.  Seriously - look at her Wikipedia page (and then ask yourself WHAT AM I DOING WITH MY LIFE?):

  • Summitt is the only men's or women's basketball coach in NCAA history to reach 1000 wins. She has never had a losing season.
  • Summitt has won 109 games in the NCAA post-season tournament. No other women's basketball program has played in 100 NCAA tournament games.
  • Forty-five of her former players have gone on to become coaches.

45!  What the what?! 

The circumstances are sad, but I love that she's going out on a high note.
