My Monday Morning Moment:

@

FOR YEARS, I'VE BEEN LOOKING FORWARD TO READING PETER KINGS MONDAY MORNING QUARTERBACK ON SI.COM.

YOU, TOO, I'M SURE. IT'S SUCH A GREAT READ. HE'S FUNNY, INSIGHTFUL, AND MANAGES TO FIND THAT NUGGET OF SPORTS INFORMATION THAT IS IMPOSSSIBLE TO FIND.

HE ALSO GOES OUT OF HIS WAY TO PAY IT FORWARD, WITH A HUMAN INTEREST STORY TO MAKE YA FEEL GOOD.

WELL , THERE WAS NO WAY ANYONE WAS GOING TO FEEL GOOD THINKING AND DISCUSSING THE TERRIBLE TRAGEDY AT SANDY HOOK.

BUT AMIDST THE WEEK 15 DISCUSSION, PETER KING PULLED OFF A CHRISTMAS MIRACLE OF HIS OWN.

HE MADE SURE TO MENTION THE PRINCIPAL AT SANDY HOOK, HER NAME IS DAWN HOCHSPRUNG.

SHE MANAGED TO TURN ON THE BUTTON TO THE ENTIRE SCHOOLS LOUDSPEAKER IN THE MIDDLE OF THE SHOOTINGS TO ALERT THE TEACHERS. THERE IS NO TELLING HOW MANY LIVES SHE SAVED.

DAWN USED TWITTER, AND PETER KING POSTED A FEW OF HER TWEETS, TO GIVE US AN INSIGHT TO HER POSITIVE THINKING AND HER TRUE LOVE FOR HER JOB AND THOSE KIDS.

THANKS PETER KING. FOR MENTIONING THE BIGGEST HERO OF THE WEEKEND. IT'S ALWAYS THE STORY BEHIND THE STORY THAT MAKES US THINK THE MOST.

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL , AND TO ALL A GOOD SPORTS NIGHT.
