Previously, on snopes, we talked about the glurge about the student athlete who isn't the best player but comes into the game and inspires his team to victory. There was a hit song in the U.S. in the 1970s, "The Last Game of the Season," on this idea.

Well, this was in the news:

A special education student worked as the boys' basketball team manager and worked so hard that he was given a uniform. It's his last home game, the team is well ahead, and the crowd chants for him to be put in the game. In the final seconds, *he scores* and the crowd goes wild.

Great story.

Thanks.

Bill
