So yesterday on the heels of a great win by one of the Big 5 schools from Philadelphia I was fortunate enough to have lunch with LaSalle’s John Giannini. My reason for the meeting was to present him with a framed print from Philly Word Art that celebrates the 60th anniversary of the Big Five and the Palestra. Daniel Duffy the artist “meticulously hand wrote the dates, teams and scores from every men’s Big 5 game ever played” to create this piece. Spending time with Coach was a thrill beyond thrills for me. I have been associated with LaSalle for three years now and I can honestly say that Coach is the consummate teacher. I am already looking forward to next season.
Please look forward to sometime in September when we auction off one of these prints signed by all of the Big 5 coaches in an effort to raise money for cancer.
