Cool Person of the Day: Michael Ball

Jered at Pez poignantly relays today's most important story: that Rock Racing owner/showman/fashionista Michael Ball is creating a catastophic injury fund:

Ball will not reveal his personal contribution, only saying it’s “in the hundreds of thousands,” and that he’d like to see the fund collect $20 million over the next two years.

“I truly believe that these athletes are the greatest athletes in the world,” Ball said in an interview with The Associated Press. “They deserve to be treated in such a way that, at the very least, they have some basic insurance, for God’s sake.”

One word... respect.
