Go J-Mac.

I'm as willing as anyone to rant about the cable news networks' willingness to replay one piece of attention-getting video ad infinitum. But in this case I can't get enough.

I don't know how many of you have seen the clip of Jason McElwain, aka J-Mac -- the autistic senior student and team manager who got into his last high school basketball home game and scored 20 freakin' points in four minutes, mostly by burying six long-range three pointers. To say he was "in the zone" is a pathetic understatement.  The scene of the students rushing out of the gym seats to hoist him on their shoulders is something straight out of a Ronnie Howard  movie. It's literally too good to be true.

J-Mac is getting his deserved share of media attention. He and his coach were interviewed on CNN's "American Morning" this morning. (I'll post the transcript when available.) And if you happen to catch the video when you're channel surfing, make sure you watch it.

It'll stay with you for a while.

P.S -- Here, we just found a link to the video.
