Sights of the Day
Ed Farmer and clubhouse manager Vince Fresso watching their Irish struggle in the first half against mighty SDSU (and former Hawkeye Chuck Long).
I showed Jose Contreras my scar from my 2000 Achilles repair and talked to him — as best I could — about my experience. Of course, I tried to explain that he is a World Class athlete and I certainly am not.
An observor tried to convince Jose that I tore mine dunking a basketball. I did do it on the court, but it was an over-the-hill jab step that was my undoing.
