The Hart of the Nation

We interrupt Bally's summer tour to bring you some in-season action!

On January 24, 2009 we headed up to the Hart Recreation Center on the Campus of the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Massachusetts for the 20th meeting ever between the Holy Cross Crusaders and the Eagles from American University. *

It was a busy day with a pre-game reception for the Holy Cross class agents and a post game autograph session with the Crusaders.

Holy Cross won the game 71 - 62, after being up 19 early in the second half and withstanding an American run that cut the lead to two. Bally took time to meet the Crusaders post game!

*With Apologies to Bob Fouracre

Here I am with Elizabeth outside the Hart Center with the new statue of Holy Cross great Bob Cousy.

Boy I would have loved to be dribbled by him or passed around his back!

Joseph was first in line for autographs and he introduced me to RJ Evans. Then he sent me down the autograph line.

All of the players were great, though perplexed, since they did not know about me, my adirondack chair, and my travels throughout 'Sader Nation.

Once Bob explained it to them though, they were all quite amused!
