Re: Time for a Dr. J Statue?

a slight digression re the Cousy statue... We, SM & Mrs. SM, attended the presentation of the statue Friday afternoon @ the DCU Center, as invited guests of the internationally recognized sculptor, and friend of SM. He placed it on Wednesday, then called me to say his Thursday was open. We invit...

Re: Let's Eat, Again

Return to Filho's Great Road, Acton MA... We are frequent regulars there, as are many others. I made a Reservation for dinner this past evening, for 6:17 pm. The appointed time was a set-up... Mrs. SM typically, upon our arrival, tells the host-hostess we have a Reservation @ <time>... She said 6:15...

Re: Time for a Dr. J Statue?

I believe it is a private donor paying for it so who knows what the budget is Considering how much he is posting about it, I’m going to assume Ed has an idea of what the budget for this is. It's relatively easy to research info about (other) statues, online, to get a rough to pretty good idea what ...

Re: Let's Eat, Again

Our new kitchen is almost done... A complete gut job, replacing the 1980 bad version of it. Mrs. SM cooked our first homemade dinner in it two nights ago. Knowing I am under the weather today, she just offered to cook again tonight. "We haven't had stuffed peppers," said my better half. &q...

Is Ed Sign man? And the same sign man who is at Mullins?
Is there another Sign Man?

Re: Time for a Dr. J Statue?

I expect it to be one big statue not 4 individual statues. Believe the goal is to honor the best 2 eras of Umass basketball with the coach and best player Great Expectations "The moral theme of Great Expectations is quite simple: affection, loyalty, and conscience are more important than socia...

Re: Time for a Dr. J Statue?

Count me less than thrilled with four statues. The Dr. J statue is a must. He is an iconic figure in the sport of basketball- he changed how the game was played (similar to Bobby Orr's impact). Having three more statues lessens the importance of Dr. J's tribute. UMASS has the Leaman Court already a...

Re: Time for a Dr. J Statue?

IMHO... This is a time, a special time... to honor the four recipients of these soon-to-be dedicated first UMass athletic statues. It's not a time to start comparing others to them, them to others, as if this is a competition for more attention to a specific player, team manager, other person involv...
