Blog Photo - Kevin Ware reads Top Ten on David Letterman showI've never been a fan of David Letterman, mostly because I think he's incredibly annoying with his "yup" and "mmhmm" after almost every Top Ten item. That's one of the things that really grinds my gears.

Still, once in a while he has a guest on the show who really nails it when they read a Top Ten list.

Last night was one of those times, as Letterman had Louisville guard Kevin Ware come on and read the Top Ten thoughts going through his head after he broke his leg against Duke.

Check it out:

Props to Ware for taking it in stride and having a good sense of humor about it.

What do you think? Was this funny? Or just another case of Ware being exploited, like Louisville's new Adidas shirts?

Ware’s injury transcends all walks of life and this is another example. Nice gesture by Amar’e, who doesn’t have a horse in the race.

When the $2,500 price for 1,000 heads appeared to be a bit steep, the company’s founder, Bryan Price, got to work. He looked on Twitter at the professional athletes sending messages to Ware and saw a note from New York Knicks forward Amar’e Stoudemire. Price had previously worked with Stoudemire’s foundation. A phone call later, Stoudemire’s foundation was on board to donate the heads. Price said on the back of the heads will be the hashtag #winforware and a logo for Stoudemire’s foundation, which aims to makes lives better for at-risk youth. 

Louisville’s sports information director, Kenny Klein, told that the heads were cleared by the school’s compliance department and will be given away to students who will be in the student section tomorrow supporting the team.

That had to hurt.. Bet he's on pain meds....that will mellow him out...But really he won;t be in the NBA. So what is his future... Getting a degree...

I loved it.  Yes, there is some exploitation, and there is bound to be, but honestly, this kid is great.  I hope to see more of him!!
