My awesome big brother said that years ago Dad had mentioned being in Sports Illustrated, a claim we'd never proved but had no reason to doubt save for the fact that we'd never seen it. Well, thanks to Lloyd (and the SI Vault!), now we can.
Want to see a glimpse of Dad in his basketball days? Check out this link, then skip to page 19 (page 14 of the actual magazine). In the bottom right hand corner, you'll see three guys. Dad's the one on the left. It made me so happy!
We also found this mention. I only wish Dad was around to call; he'd love that we were all so excited!
It makes me wonder if this is why Dad always had such a slant towards SI over ESPN magazine. It's all starting to make sense...
