This amazing and inspiring gymnast, Jennifer Bricker, was born without legs and abandoned as a baby. Two amazing people, Sharon and Gerald Bricker, adopted her and took her to her new home in Oblong, Illinois. There they taught her very valuable life lessons that she would never forget.
While she was growing up her parents always taught her to never say "I Can't." Although she was handicapped they wanted her to feel like she can do anything she puts her heart into. Without exaggeration, that is exactly what she did. Jennifer played every sport they allowed her to and was very good at it. None better than a gymnast, but she loved doing all she could.
Jennifer went on to become the tumbling champion and later discovered that she had a very famous gymnast in her blood. It's something she never knew as a young girl and found out later in her life. Wait until you see who it is! more >>
The Cleveland Cavaliers faced their second loss this season against the Utah Jazz over a 2-point buzzer beater Wednesday made by Gordon Hayward. The moment happened after Hayward was able to break free from LeBron James to catch a pass, step back on the right wing, and scoring a jump shot just as the end game horn had sounded.
"I've never really done that before. It was just one of those moments," Hayward had said regarding their team's resounding celebration. "How can you not show emotion after a finish like that? For us to win the game after being in control the whole game and then see it slipping away, it was pretty special."
While the Cavaliers are looking to be having a bad start this season, it's only the start of November and the team is looking to improve. more >>

If Algieri suffers the loss in the upcoming fight, his undefeated streak will end. However, if Pacquiao loses the match, the possibility of a bout with Mayweather will only completely disappear.
