I’m a huge, huge sports fan, and Marquette basketball is my No. 1 thing.
I had spindly little ankles, and growing up in Canada, I couldn’t skate. I was no good at any sports so was very much a pariah through those adolescent years.
Now, I know you expected me to say that, well, I just kick back in the rocking chair, fished a little bit, listened to Willie Nelson tapes and watched old baseball games on the Classic Sports network. And, tell you the truth, I have done that for maybe about five total minutes.
My schedule has slowed a little. I’ve cut back on some of my assignments. But I still have the enthusiasm for the sports world that I had 38 years ago.
