    Brian Grant driven to succeed in career as broadcaster

    Walked up to Brian on Friday night at Dr. Jacks and some LA Bum @EL PRESIDENTE asked me to take his picture with him. We all chatted briefly, seriously one of the most down to earth guys. Highlight of my Thanksgiving.

    Then @EL PRESIDENTE whispers into Brain Grant's ear, "I have your sweat in my childhood bedroom."

    Oh yeah, you can actually support the Brian Grant Foundation by adding his foundation to your Amazon Smile.

    https://smile.amazon.com

    You add the charity, then shop at smile.amazon.com to donate a percentage of your spending to them.

    Awesome. My Dad has Parkinsons and I have a bad tremor but they say I'm fine. My Dad has trouble moving too though he ran a 5K last year and walked all over NYC this year. I'm happy for Brian Grant that he has something fun to do. He was an awesome player for us.

    I really enjoy BG's input. Much better than hearing that douchebag Harvey.

    Loved him as a player and even more as a person. Gutsy, brave and kind. Really glad the Blazers have embraced him.
