    I don't like the Seahawks but this is pretty adorable.

    A 3-year-old fan knows entire Seahawks roster, even the backup safety and offensive line coach

    UH nurses help a dying dad to his daughter's wedding walk down the aisle

    Scott Nagy thought a dad's promise ought to be kept. He kept his.

    The cancer invading his body doesn't give him much time. A volunteer team of medical professionals gave him enough on Saturday to keep a vow to his daughter on her wedding day.

    He made the crosstown trip by ambulance, from an intensive-care bed at University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center to First Evangelical Lutheran Church in Strongsville. Monitor cords ran from under his charcoal tuxedo, and a tracheal tube loosened his tie.

    His wife, Jean, fastened a boutonniere to his lapel at the church and gave him a kiss. Bride Sarah Nagy met him in the vestibule, burst into tears and told him she loved him.

    "We did it," Nagy said with a reassuring smile, telling his daughter he was just a small part of her day and warning she'd streak her makeup.

    WTOL: An early Christmas, a boy with cancer, and the town who loves him

    Devin Kohlman is a special kid.
    And the entire city of Port Clinton knows it. They're going all out for him - creating a Christmas-Halloween holiday extravaganza in his honor.

    Because there's a chance he won't be here when the real thing rolls around.

    Devin's a fighter. He's been battling an aggressive form of brain cancer for over a year. His family just learned the chemotherapy isn't working. Doctors say he doesn't have months.

    He has weeks.

    "We want Devin to have the best Christmas that he's ever had," said Alexis Kohlman, Devin's mother. "And we want to make sure that he has Christmas."

    I saw a family in Target the other day with five full carts of toys. (Not this past weekend with the 10% off deal) Their bill came to nearly $4000. They said they were heading straight to the Toys for Tots drop. I asked if they were part of an organization or just their family. Mom said it was just their family. Thought that was pretty awesome.
    Jaws was never my scene, and I don't like Star Wars.

    This guy:

    A pro surfer rescued a woman after she fell off a cliff

    An injured woman was nearly swept into the ocean after falling 30 feet from a cliff, before a former professional surfer rescued the woman, the second rescue the man's performed in the same stretch of ocean.

    Longtime Santa Cruz, Calif. resident Vince Collier was getting his fishing gear ready on tide pools when he heard a cry that sounded like a baby otter.

    The cry came and went for a few minutes until Collier, a former professional surfer who grew up in a nearby house, realized the sound was an injured woman stuck on a rock ledge about 100 feet from his fishing spot.

    “I put my pole down because it sounds like someone is screaming for help,” Collier, 53, said on Sunday as he described his role in helping the Los Gatos woman. “She was in and out of consciousness,” he said.

    Excellent thread, hadn't noticed til now. All these stories have one great thing in common, and that one thing is the entire reason they are notable.
