John Wooden 99 Hospitalized in Grave Condition

Get well soon coach! I hope you pull through!


Legendary UCLA coach John Wooden has been hospitalized and is in grave condition, according to multiple media reports on Thursday.

Wooden, 99, is being treated at UCLA Medical Center. KCAL in Los Angeles first reported Wooden's hospitalization, and the Los Angeles Times confirmed it through school sources.

The former UCLA coach and Hall of Famer is confined to a wheelchair after a series of minor health setbacks in recent years. He was hospitalized briefly a month ago and spent weeks in the hospital a year ago being treated for pneumonia.

Reports say his last request was to get a shave so that he would look his best when he saw his wife again…The same one he had written a letter to every day of his life, even though she passed about 27yrs ago.   :o

There was sooo much to learn from the man.

He was a one of a kind, no doubt.

The LA Times is doing a commemorative on him…Not sure if it will be online or not.
