Testimonials

With all the negativity in sports these days (i.e. Michael Vick, steroids, exorbitant contracts, etc.) I'm glad to see GNN come out with a sports section to report all of the good things that are happening in the world of sports.  Great for kids and adults to view the good side of sport celebrities. I love GNN.  It starts my day off in a great frame of mind.
