Can a former Nick Saban assistant finally beat the boss?
ABC News - about 2 months
NEW ORLEANS -- Terry Saban, the mama bear of Alabama football, does not like the idea that the Crimson Tide's road to a fifth national championship in her husband Nick's 11 seasons as head coach goes through Georgia head coach Kirby Smart, Saban's right-hand guy for so long. "It's like arguing with your children," Terry said after the Tide defeated Clemson 24-6 in the Allstate Sugar Bowl. "You don't like to do that." Which brings to mind Brad Paisley's song "Letter to Me": "Each and every time you have a fight/Just assume you're wrong and Dad is right." That's how it's gone when Saban has faced a former assistant: He's 11-0 against five guys who used to coach for him. Saban began the drive to a national championship this season with a 24-7 victory over one former assistant, Jimbo Fisher of Florida State, and he will end it by facing another. Saban said about what you would expect him to say about Smart, who worked for him.....

Randy Travis Suddenly Singing 'Amazing Grace' Will Move You To Tears
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Grab some tissues.  Singer Randy Travis was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame on Sunday and stunned the audience when he broke out into song during the ceremony. Travis experienced a life-threatening stroke in 2013, which initially left him without the ability to walk, talk or sing. “Randy stared death in the face, but death blinked,” Travis’ wife, Mary Davis-Travis, said during the induction ceremony as her husband stood beside her.  Davis-Travis detailed her husband’s still-arduous road to recovery, which included a six-month stay in the hospital after the stroke, surgeries and rehabilitation. After his stroke, Davis-Travis was asked by doctors if she wanted to take her then-fiance off life support. “I went to his bedside and I said, ‘Baby, you’ve got to give me some more fight,’” Davis-Travis previously said about the experience.  Travis can’t speak in full sentences yet, though his vocabulary is growing.
