This may not be an Identity Management subject, but I just had to share a happy memory and bit of congratulations as I return to blogging after a long time.

Many years ago, my younger sister prepared for a high school science fair by training a pair of white rats to play basketball.  She taught the little critters to stuff a whiffle ball through a wire hoop by rewarding each successful attempt.

On the morning of the science fair, the female rat gave birth to a litter of young rats.  As expected, she refused to play ball.  But the daddy rat? He went right ahead and played hoops!

Today, Phoenix Suns’ superstar Steve Nash played his best best game of the young NBA season tonight on the same day his wife gave birth to a new baby boy.  This morning, the Nash’s new son, Matteo Joel Nash, was born.  Tonight, Dad almost had a triple double with 28 points, 14 assists and 7 rebounds as the Suns beat the Sacramento Kings 103-89.  Congratulations Suns! Congratulations Nash family!

And lest of you think otherwise, none of us think Steve is a rat!
