No self-respecting Amare Day would be complete without some YouTube highlights of the man himself. If you're reading this from work, you might want to put on your headphones or mute the volume. Wouldn't want to get anyone in trouble with the boss.

Last, one of the many, many "Amare Mix" videos on YouTube. This one has plays from both before and after the "lost" year. I picked it for that reason, and because I liked the music.
