GREAT NEWS! Matt Brown Moves Toes!

You might think that is a pithy headline, but you would be wrong.

Matt Brown is a 16-year-old hockey player who I introduced you to several months ago, when he was injured in an on-ice play. A charity hockey game was held in his honor in Bridgeport in April, and I wrote about it here.

Matt's progress has been wonderful, and we have followed it both here on the blog, and on "The Press Box." So it is with great pleasure that I point you to these articles and videos, bringing you the news that Matt has begun wiggling toes.

In fact, follow all of the coverage of Matt's progress here.

Ah, but there's one more piece of news. We haven't made it official, and we just have to find a time that works for all of us, but Michael Brown, Matt's father, told me yesterday that Matt would be thrilled to appear on "The Press Box" - a goal that we set several months ago. I can't tell you how excited and emotional I am at that thought.

Even if we can't make it happen, we'll keep you posted on Matt.

Congratulations to the Brown family!
