I'm not crying - YOU'RE crying...

If you didn't know, Marquette alum and NBA star Dwayne Wade just finished his final season.  He was recently recognized at a Marquette game back in January:

For memories, let's see a throwback pic of D Wade actually WEARING and PLAYING in his Marquette jersey:

He looks like a baby he's so freaking young!  

He's a pretty big deal around these parts, and a pretty big deal around the league.  So it's no surprise he went out in his final season with a bang, and some serious feels.  He called it the #OneLastDance farewell tour.  He's been swapping jerseys with opposing players after the games, players who have looked up to him.  It's a cool move and a great sign of respect between players.

Budweiser decided to flip the script on him though - instead of him showing respect to other people - it's people who have had their lives directly impacted by Wade.  

Five of them to be exact.  A woman whose brother died in the Parkland shooting; a woman who could only afford college because Wade paid her tuition; a man on the wrong track until Wade’s life story helped him to reach higher; and a Miami-area woman he took shopping after her family lost everything in a pre-Christmas house fire.   

That's only four?  Oh...you'll have to watch the video to see the fifth and final one.  Grab a box of tissues and get ready for a good ugly cry.  

Talk to you in the morning,
