Sports Illustrated Covers and Mormon Kids

The last two high schoolers on Sports Illustrated covers are Mormon kids:

Bryce Harper, at 16 called “baseball’s Lebron”: Now all of 19 and playing outfield for the Washington Nationals (just picked up a book about his one year at college)

Jabari Parker, hoops star also mentioned in the same sentence as Lebron James

I’d much rather hear regular updates on these apparently wonderful athletes: examples of humilty, discipline, having gifts from heaven, and good-nature, too; than anything about the Mitt, Mall, or Musical.  Or BYU.  Ever.

On a related note, UVU’s baseball team ended their amazing winning streak with a reluctant loss against Utah.  I was there, and both teams played the game beautifully.
