Bumped - This is far more important than any win or loss ...P

From an AP Wire story:

Although Stafon Johnson only spoke seven words, they were loaded with meaning and hope. Repeating the last words spoken to him by his late grandfather, the Southern California tailback said, "God has a plan. Run, Stafon, run."

Johnson already can speak in a soft, raspy voice less than three months after a weight bar crushed his throat in a potentially fatal weight room accident. He briefly demonstrated his remarkable recovery Saturday before the Trojans' game against Stanford.

"Just the whisper, it was a big thing," said Kim Mallory, Johnson's mother. "I wasn't expecting any type of sound for a while. It's overwhelming."

Johnson also has regained the ability to swallow and eat solid food, an improbably quick achievement after several operations on his neck, according to the doctors who have supervised his recovery since the late-September accident in the USC weight room.

Johnson was ambivalent about playing again, and that's more than fair enough... but I'm delighted that he's recovering so quickly.
