From Pyro's blog, we learned that the 3 yr old kid's wish is to meet the Fil-Greek WWE Wrestler Batista (o kahit na si Undertaker o John Cena).
Nasa pilipinas ba currently si Joseph ngayon o nasa US? Kaka-alis lang kasi ni batista eh after visiting the Philippines just a few weeks ago (sept. 7 to 9) to promote the WWE SmackDown! Survivor Series Tour at the Araneta Coliseum on Oct. 21 and 22.
It's too bad Joseph's stuck in the hospital undergoing chemo therapy. One way for Pyro to meet Batista is for somebody to schedule a surprise visit for the kid at the hospital kapag bumalik si Batista sa Pinas for the Survivor Series.
Pero kung pwede si Joseph na lumabas sa hospital, somebody could arrange to give him and his guardian courtside seats to the Survivor Series event. and all batista has to do when he comes out during the introductions before the match is: daanan niya yung lugar kung saan nakaupo yung bata, and give Pyro a high five, or a kiss on the forehead. That's it.
Yan rin ang ginagawa ni WNBA basketball star Lisa Leslie before the start of every Sparks game.
Plaschke went to see Leslie play, and calls her one of the most influential athletes in Los Angeles history, in part because of this:It happens before every Sparks game at Staples Center. It happens during the introductions.
Like every starter, Lisa Leslie runs to the center of the court and hands a basketball to a child from the stands.
But, unlike anyone else, she drops to one knee, hugs the child, and whispers into an ear.
"God bless you," she says. "Always give your best."
The child, usually nervous and wanting to run off, stops and listens. The parents of that child, expecting an athlete's apathy, stop and stare.
Memories happen. Photos happen. Maybe even a bit of inspiration happens.
Then, and only then, does Lisa Leslie play basketball.
