Pool player donates kidney to save rival!

a pool table with the balls strewn across it and a pool cue resting on it. Text overlaid reads “Pool player donates kidney to save rival!”

We loved this story from the New York Post about pool rivals who, a decade later, showed true sportsmanship as one donated a kidney to the other.

Russ Redhead had put out an angry Facebook post claiming James Harris Jr had an unfair advantage in a pool tournament after he pulled ahead.

Things cooled down and they attended tournaments together but when James’ wife informed Russ that he was in desperate need of a kidney, everyone who knew them was shocked as these rivals became kidney buddies for life!

What an incredible act of kindness!
