Many of you know the story of Lane Goodwin, the young man from Kentucky who is battling cancer and is a huge UK fan. An internet campaign has gone on for the past couple of weeks to give “Thumbs Up to Lane”, wishing the young man well and letting him know that people are pulling for him. Hundreds of people, including John Calipari, Jacob Tamme and even Matchbox 20, have sent “thumbs up” pictures to Lane via his Facebook page and on Twitter. And tonight, Nerlens Noel tweeted that he Facetimed with Lane Goodwin to wish him luck. That is a tremendous act by Nerlens, a player who obviously has great talent, but as we have seen since arriving on campus, a great heart as well.
We at KSR all give Lane a Thumbs Up and also a round of applause to the Flat Top.
