Would you listen to The Sacred Acre again? Why?
Yes I've listen to it a few times already. Such a story has a big impact on a person. Ed Thomas was a truly inspiring man, who loved his family, his friends and wbat he woke up everyday to do. Not just to coach, but to shape the lives of his players and town.
