Cheers: To Lauren Hill, the 19-year-old freshman at Mount St. Joseph University in Ohio who is terminally ill with brain cancer, for attaining her dream of playing in a college basketball game. AND to her coach, team, the NCAA, and the opposing team (Hiram) who worked together to make it happen.

i Jeers: To the overzealous emergency room security guard at a local hospital. Your insane enforcement of the “two-per-room” rule when no other ER employee cared was ridiculous, making eight of the last 24 hours of the time with our dying mother unnecessarily stressful. Shameful!

Jeers: To Tony Romo for losing the game on Monday Night Football. He bullied his way back into the game and threw it away. Backup quarterback Brandon Weeden was doing a great job in this struggle and was the best chance to win the game with his momentum.
