    It's about the North Carolina mascot who died after being hit by the car in New Jersey. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.

    Wow, this one is a tearjerker. It's hard to not want to be an organ donor after reading it.

    Yeah I read it earlier this afternoon. Loved it and couldn't hold back the tears. Makes you appreciate each day.

    I enjoy E-Ticket in general but the design/multimedia in this presentation was A+.(Not to mention the story) The videos weren't too long or too short and added to the context of the story. The three sections built in with flash. This is what Journalism should be on the internet...now if only the morons in the suits counting the bills would realize this.

    Wow, what a story. What a kid. We should all be so lucky to have known or know someone like him. Damn.

    This story and packaging was absolutely brilliant. Brilliant stuff. Recharges my batteries. Look how much good work you can do with time and money.

    This story and its presentation, IMHO, is the future of our profession. I don't say this very often, but bravo, ESPN.com and a fine job by Mr. Drehs.

    I now anxiously await the flying of pigs and the freezing of Hades.

    The online presentation seems even more impeccable when compared to the same story on "E:60." I lost track of time reading the E-Ticket piece (never good at work, but worth it). I flipped the channel during "E:60."
