When Walt Whitman first published Leaves of Grass in 1855, it was met with mild enthusiasm, save that of a certain Mr. Ralph Waldo Emerson, who heaped the following praise upon our national bard: "I greet you at the beginning of a great career, which yet must have had a long foreground somewhere, for such a start. I rubbed my eyes a little, to see if this sunbeam were no illusion; but the solid sense of the book is a sober certainty."
Well, so too is it that BearMeat heralds the forthcoming autobiography from head basketball coach Kim Mulkey, aka "Mulk," whose 2005 National Championship was the sounding of her barbaric yawp to the women's hoops world. Won't Back Down: Teams, Dreams & Family will certainly change your life, if it hasn't already.
The "I Believe" of the 21st Century
We encourage all of our readers to reserve an advance copy
and eagerly anticipate its arrival at your household. We suggest holding daily devotionals where each parent takes turns reading a passage from the book, so that your little Bears at home will grow up with a sense that Baylor is a School of Champions and not of low expectations. Make sure to let your little Bear dream that anything is possible, as Our Mulk has proven.
In Mulk's Holy Name we pray, Amen.
