  1. Don’t remember seeing this shot before…boy what memories! Must’ve been cold evryone is bundled up.

    All the Best! Mark

  2. Yes, Mark, it was another cold wintery night and that tunnel was freezing. After the court was set up, the guys played basketball. One shot with Michael Kennedy is featured in the “God Bless the Spectrum” tribute book.
