Shane Victorino and Dr. Hallowell Are Members of The ADHD League of the Magnificently Minded

Here’s a shout out to Shane Victorino and to the Red Sox Nation! Shane has ADHD. He’s a member of my special club – the League of the Magnificently Minded. Although I have never met Mr. Victorino, I feel as if I know him, as those of us who have the special trait so misleadingly called ADHD tend to share an array of special qualities. In his case, his super energy, wild abandon in how he plays, absolute devotion to the team, and an ability to hyper-focus when in the game all distinguish him as one of our members.

Basking in the glow of Red Sox 2013, I see that wild dreams sometimes do come true, that a lost and broken team one year can become a triumphant and unified team the next. If it happens to them, it happens to us all.  See Shane describe ADHD here.
