Our KU Pals must be so proud!
The third bit of history [sold at auction recently] was the document that listed the 13 rules for the game of basketball invented by James Naismith in 1891. It sold for the highest price of all, $4,338,500. The money from the sale will go to the Naismith International Basketball Foundation.
The auction results were big news on TV and really caught my attention. My only connection to basketball is that my daughter played it well in high school, lettered I think, and at KHS I broke a finger playing it, thus ending what surely wouldn't have been a stellar career anyway! But I do have lots of KU pals and am just thinking this is really a wonderful thing to have happened for the Basketball Foundation, lots of good will come from that money. Jayhawks Rock!
