just out of curiosity, how many of the regular board posters went last year?
gwalum20015/14/2018 5:21:40 PM
I went and it was fantastic...got to meet the players and take pics with the kids afterwards. One of the better events I have been to (and the game itself was awesome too).

Any of you guys get a chance to speak with Joe Lalli, do it. And, buy him a beer.
One of GW's nicest all-time guys, and, one of the most intense competitors, you could meet. My guess, he'd still hit the basket when you need him to.

I was a freshman in the Fall of 1966, and Joe Lalli was my favorite player. Tough, clutch, and drove the other teams crazy. It’s great that he comes back for this game. Buy him another beer from me!

The Fall of 1966, huh? Best Fall of all time? I recall it that way.
Did you take phys. ed. with the football team?
My recollection isn't the best any more. I've lost my glasses for the 7th time in two days. But, I think GW's bigs led the nation in fouls per player in 66-67. I had a pal who scrimmaged them, said they were a rough, if untalented, bunch.

It was a great Fall, BRIANPAUL. I was a 16 year old freshman, a stranger in a strange land, soaking everything up, and grew up fast. Went to basketball and football games, and was loving college life. Discovered Bergman, Fellini, and Truffaut at The Circle. Learned a lot more about women.....
I took phys ed that year, but not with the football team. I remember Steve Korchek was our main instructor, and he had two assistants who were former basketball players at GW, Joe Mullen and "Leaping" Larry Usiskin. Both were great guys.
Yes, Joe Lalli did not have much around him, but watching Babe McCarthy coach was fun.

I did not take any courses about women until Fall, 1967, but I enjoyed them. MG: do you recall a Truffault film (or two) about child abuse? I took a friend to one, wanted to see it again, cannot ID it. I may have the wrong director, but, I know I saw it at the Circle. I lived there, for the popcorn, of course. (And, my classes with the football players were actually 67-68. Joe was a phs ed assistant that year, I am pretty certain)
I recall Terry Grefe having some good games. But, I think he was more of a boxer.
the other mg5/16/2018 11:06:04 PM
The Truffaut film you are probably thinking of is "Small Change," which came out sometime in the 70s.
And speaking of small change, Terry Grefe did have some talent, but I think he was our small forward at 6'2". He had a nice shot, but was often overmatched, especially at the defensive end. Dick Ballard was our 2 guard. Anyway, it wasn't a good team, but it was all we had, and I loved them.
Didn't take any classes about women. What I learned was "extracurricular". Remember, I was just a kid.
Life is good!

Great idea last year, glad to see its going to be a perennial thing.
brianpaul5/17/2018 2:06:39 AM
MG, I was a slow learner with the women. I was just a kid, too. I think you nailed that movie. It was the only time my mother in law showed much intellectual insight, when we were discussing it. A sweet, innocent woman. Anyway, I'll check it out. Thanks.
I thought Grefe was an on the court fighter, too. I also had thought he could score.

I attended last year with my "row-mates" (friends and fellow season ticket-holders. We had a great time and even got to meet President and Mrs. LeBlanc!

Dude, did you go last year?
gw 08 alum5/17/2018 7:35:23 PM
Is ML allowed on campus? Maybe he can get the night off from folding towels at the Bowie gym.
bobo5/18/2018 12:39:18 AM
ML would have to attend sedated and with a muzzle to prevent the school from further civil liability. What a true disgrace I hope he never stepped foot on campus again.
the mv5/19/2018 12:40:19 AM
I have it on good authority that Lonergan is not allowed back within 1000 feet of the campus. It was part of the terms of his settlement with the University.
real bobo5/19/2018 2:57:09 PM
ML is not the one banned from campus. He was paid handsomely to keep quiet but can go anywhere he wants, including his buddy's restaurant-Circa.
bobo5/19/2018 3:37:26 PM
Ml is not invited or allowed on campus. If he were to attend you would have to transport him like Hannibal Lecter.

Oh my god who cares
