So, I met my friend @ Damon’s last night as part of our annual ritual to exchange brackets, eat grub and watch hoops. I get there at 6:30 and there’s this table set up with “the Goon Show” on it and had to chuckle to myself. I remember seeing this thread, but didn’t open/read it b/c I typically stay to the recruiting threads and “breaking news” threads - especially since some threads seem to ramble. (heehee).
Just was a pleasant suprise, and was pretty funny to me at the time. There’s Brian Allen, Glen Sekunda and Coach Daly. AND they were talking about PennStateHoops.com - with some guy calling in from Maine. Was just great to hear them talking hoops.
Later in the evening I met Coach Daly, told him I thought they were doing a great job and that I’d taken my family to several games - and that my kids knew every player by name. He made a comment like “were getting there, it’ll take time to build” or something like that, and Invited my family to come to a practice. He even offered give aways for the kids, which I thought was cool - even though my kids might be a bit too old (13,11,and 7).
I have no idea if that’s typical - I was under the impression that most practices were closed - but that’s how you build a program. My kids (and I) are already fans of the guys, but for my oldest to meet her fav (Jermaine), and second oldest to meet Timmy and Ross Travis (favorites) will be really cool.
