The attendance at today's first Sports luncheon was pretty good considering the present circumstances.
Men's Soccer Coach Fran O'Leary, one of the speakers at today's luncheon, is always a hoot!!!
Warning, Rant ahead:
Football has decided not to participate in the Luncheons.
I am a Luncheon Committee member, a football fan and a big supporter of Walt Bell and his program and what he's trying to accomplish here
but I think this is the wrong decision!!
Football's presence at the Luncheons, during their season, has been a proud and appreciated tradition.
Just sayin'.......

This is literally, "If you can't stand the heat, stay out of the kitchen". Pretty timid behavior for a football coach.

1ST- Kirk is listed at 5'7" and 230. I am 5'6" and about 235 and after looking up clips and images, he looks smaller in some ways then I am. I have a larger stomach and middle, but he's got larger thighs. So there is no way he is any where near 275. You need to stop fat shaming people.

Interesting re new higher cost for Berkshire DC sports luncheons for alums.
Last time I ate there, not sports Luncheon, not too long ago, was $10.
New price is $13.95 for alums...
39.5% increase is a wow based on % only.
I can afford it easily but seniors on tighter retirement budgets ... ?
For a lighter eater like we both are here, I guess it'll be fill up the plate, eat some and take a meal to go to bring home.
would the activists declare that politically incorrect,
or have they been doing that for so long, they are the cause of this umassive Inflationary increase.
Maybe we need to apply for an Economics Dept Fed
Grant to study it.
There must be $ out there for it.
