Let's Go Hoya's
A great memory for a kid, Big Joe's grandson captured here. I remember when I was six years old I was a batboy for the Wareham Gatewen of the Cape Cod league, before the lawnmower, I thought it was the coolest thing. To be close to the game, and that love and passion never evaportaed. And today "Tre best name ever his father has legit game got to hold the ball at his passionate request during a timeout out during today's first half.
A follow up pic shows the little man is in fact having a day.
Back door cut and the dog. This is the Princeton offense or did you forget where JT3 came from? And the dog, the mascot, always big fuck a giant orange, the Hoyas has the real living thing. Matteo was telling me today the funeral is a massive deal and I thought what a great thing to film and document in detail. There he is!
And my favorite part, the hey baby, I'd been waiting all game for it, it's when I first fell in love with those same floor seats in 2002. Hey even though they were terrible I was a huge dirty dancing fan, and this is the joint. And they were OK but Craig had to go which brings me to my next point, it's hard to replace a legend with a big AND sometimes you gotta let go. And before first tip I learned of Jeff Green hearty condition Reggie Lewis were the first things JK said to me. I hadn't even heard anything other than he was hurt and the details were foggy but it's the NBA, dam. I';m glad they saved him, we also watched Jeff Greene the ultimate all around player take the Hoya's to the final four, with Roy Gibbs, Pete Nice gave him a high five coming out of the pub one night where he did his year out here and has been a big fan ever since. But Reggie Lewis, more on that in this o during the next session. And it wouldn't be DC without an outro, go, go, holla
