Happy almost-Superbowl, everyone!

I grew up in a hardcore football town – a real-life Friday Night Lights (I played the bit part of a girl who got shoved into lockers by cheerleaders). Ah, high school politics.
But what this middle school football team did for their classmate, Keith, is our feel-good moment of the week. Keith is a learning disabled student whose struggle with boundaries manifests itself in the sweetest way – a need to hug everyone. Little did he (or the football coaches) know, that the whole team was conspiring to embrace him right back.
