We don’t often recommend TV viewing, but tonight ( Nov. 8 ) you can watch something special at the same time that our wounded warriors at Walter Reed Medical Center are: the new movie “A Fighting Chance” on ESPN Classic (7PM Eastern time zone; check your TV listings for time in your area).
The film tells the story of someone we’ve come to know and admire over the last year – Kyle Maynard – whose message of “No Excuses” is having a huge impact on a huge range of people – from other athletes, to corporate leaders, to returning service members. Be sure to watch the film tonight on ESPN Classic at 7 PM EST. Check out the trailer below!
