The ESPN SportsCenter My Wish segments really are feel good moments. Seeing these larger than life athletes (or in Ladainian Tomlinson's case former larger than life athletes) give some of their time to help a kid is a great thing. Certainly beats Chris Broussard or John Clayton making up NBA or NFL news.
There was not a lot of news today, so adding one of these segments certainly made the SportsCenter broadcast better. But honestly at 6 PM or so you could probably find a sitcom or something in syndication to watch when there is nothing in the sports world to discuss.
