You know those people who can light up a whole room with their smile?
I'm talking about the social butterflies—those lanterns of empathy, whose presence alone can flood an entire space with joy and goodwill between men.
The following are a number of athletes (and coaches) just like that—the walking mirth-merchants of sports who go about their lives spreading cheer and smiles wherever they go. These are their most jubilant pictures, along with my presumptions at what good fortune exactly brought them to this elevated plane of happiness.
They're like human space heaters, but instead of heat, they bathe us all in the warmth of their compassion.
