I can't think of a more meaningful way to spend a day than what my wife and I did today.  I was honored and thrilled to have "Dick Vitale Day at All-Children's Hospital" in Tampa.  I spent the day touring this incredible facility and visiting with all the sick youngsters.  Meeting these kids and their families makes you realize how special each day is and to never take anything we have in life for granted.  I was thrilled to be able to present each child with a copy of my new children's book, Dick Vitale's ABC's and 1-2-3's.  I read it out loud to the youngsters and it brought so many smiles and laughs to their faces.  It was really a magical day and one I will remember for a long, long time.  I can't thank the staff at All-Children's enough for their support and passion.
