Seth Davis: To the regulars at Vip's, Wooden was simply another warm presence

TARZANA, Calif. -- Vip's restaurant was bustling with customers as usual on Sunday morning, but one booth sat conspicuously empty. Tucked into the corner, second from the end, it served as a mini-shrine to the man who occupied it almost every morning for nearly 20 years. A vase of yellow roses sat on the table, surrounded by envelopes that had been placed by well-wishers. A book of remembrances lay open so people could write in it. Next to the book stood a framed photograph of the honored occupant. In the picture the man is wearing a coat and tie, he is sitting with his legs crossed, and he is holding a basketball. The picture is signed, "Best wishes, John Wooden, UCLA."
