RIP Maunte Bol

A very big man died today. Manute Bol who played in the NBA and at the University of Bridgeport died today of Kidney Failure. He was 47. Manute played many years in the NBA, but was also know for his generosity as he spent lots of time and money trying to help his native land of Sudan. Our dad once saw Manute and some other players on the Metro North train from New York City to Bridgeport and said that although he stood out, he did not try to make a big deal of himself. May his legacy of peace and generosity last for his homeland of Sudan.
