This particular business trip in December 2006 was to be my last of that year, but as it turned out, it could very well have been my last for a very long time. I had traveled the world as a commercial airplane marketing and sales director for cabin interior equipment for over 20 uneventful travel years. I was in Paris on this trip and had met with my airline customers, closing a very important company deal and handing out small Christmas gifts. I got back to my hotel that Friday afternoon exhausted.

Ryan Davidson is a 12 years old who lives in Wisconsin, where it's really cold this time of year. He's had a brain tumor removed--twice. He's lost his hair and a lot of his energy to 18 months of chemotherapy. But, there is one thing that keeps him going. He loves USC, and when he's feeling down, he has a secret weapon--he pulls out his scrapbook and relives the time he and his family spent with the team last season. But, after the USC-UCLA game earlier this month, he's got a host of brand new memories.

For Ryan Davison and his father Kirby, seeing the USC Trojans play the California Golden Bears in the Los Angeles Coliseum last Saturday was a dream come true for both of them. Being among the more than 90,000 fans who witnessed USC stop Cal from scoring in the final moments of the thriller and preserve their 23-17 victory was the icing on the cake for the father and son duo from Wisconsin. Kirby, who is an employee with the School of Banking at the University of Wisconsin, grew up in the land of the Wisconsin Badgers and Green Bay Packers.
