Sports

Caleb was diagnosed in the summer of 2013, and is an absolute trooper in dealing with the unfortunate hand he has been dealt. He saw Richochet in ESPN The Magazine, and told Make-a-Wish that his dream was to surf with the aquatic pooch.

To whomever chose the song to pair with this video, thanks a lot. Now I have trails of salty water through my beard. No idea how that happened…
