Coach to Coach

I saw this short note in the sidebar of the Deseret Morning News Sports section and thought I'd share.

Coach to Coach

Jazz coach Jerry Sloan got a surprise at last week's game against the Clippers--a pat on the back from the leader.

No, we're not talking about NBA Commissioner David Stern.

Reports said during a third-quarter timeout, LDS Church President Thomas S. Monson was returning to his seat, when he paused to pat Sloan's shoulder and say something along the lines of, "Good job, coach. You're the best."

No word on whether President Monson offered any "ward ball" tips on how to give a hard foul.

I thought this was pretty funny. I'm really glad that President Monson can get out and do something fun sometimes.
