So much talent, so little ego — that may go down as the hallmark of this undefeated University of Kentucky men's basketball team.
That 19- and 20-year-old super-athletes willingly pass up individual moments of glory for the greater good should serve as an inspiration for us all.
It seems especially relevant as this year's session of the General Assembly winds down with much important business still undone.
Lawmakers should follow the Wildcats' lead and put aside their political and personal agendas to move bills that will help their constituents. And they should remember that their team, ultimately, is not their political party or caucus, but the people and the state they were elected to represent.
Congratulations to these history-making Wildcats on a perfect regular season. Thanks for treating us to some great basketball; we're looking forward to more. And thanks for reminding us of the power of teamwork.
