point out the assist

2/4/04

I have to keep this short tonight, as I am getting up at the crack of dawn to drive to North Carolina for the Dook game. I must tell you, however, that I met one of my few living idols today: Dean Smith came to Manhattan for an intimate (40 people) taping of CenterStage on the Yes Network, and we were all there. I can’t begin to tell you how much this man has meant to me over the years – and not in the way that college basketball coaches typically hold sway over a fan base – but I’ll leave it until tomorrow to make my case.

Either way, I’m so happy to have finally met the man. He said Tessa’s smile was great. YAY!
