The Night Andrew Jones Was Diagnosed With Leukemia, Texas Wins in 2OT and Honors Him

Everyone ready for the daily cry, because that’s what this could do to you? There’s something beautiful about sports, man. Just the way it always seems to work out and when there’s something terrible that happens to a team/city/organization/whatever, the bounceback is awesome. Now, in the grand scheme of things a double overtime win against No. 16 TCU isn’t helping Andrew Jones and his battle. It’s not curing cancer. But for those moments it provides some relief for all those involved. I mean just look at the emotion on everyone’s face, especially Shaka Smart. I mean, shit, look how fired up he was after the game:

Just absolutely awesome. I know thoughts and prayers have turned into a whole different thing now, but some serious thoughts are out for Andrew Jones and his family. No 20 year old should have to battle this disease, because as always, FUCK cancer. Hook em, baby.
