State of the Union


So, what does the President of the United States and the Houston Rockets have in common?
They both love Dikembe Mutombo!
Tonight, President Bush delivered the State of the Union Address. I got out of class early so I got to see the last 45 minutes of it...and I was stunned to see one of my favorite Houston Rockets players not only in attendance but also being recognized for greatness. Mutombo has helped fund and build a $27 Million hospital in Kinshasa, Africa. He works as a NBA Ambassador for Africa. Tonight I'd also like to recognize Mutombo for his greatness on and off the court.

Hi, Thien! Glad to see you again. Like a huge Rockets nerd, I imported the season's schedule into my Outlook Calendar at work, and it just reminded me of the game tonight! I will definitely be watching. I hope you enjoy the game.
