Congratulations. But the ring is a prop. The NBL's respect -- which means something because of the class of their organization -- is the real prize. :)

Chuck -

OUTSTANDING! As always, well written with that wry sense of humor that (most of us) loved, and a great job by Windsor in recognizing you.

I am confused, though - you mean you never got a championship ring from the Utica Wreckers????

Keep up the great work!

Chuck -That's really good. Congratulations. God knows few people get rich and the rest get poorer in the minors. That was a lot of toil.

I was really surprised about the story you mentioned, in the Armory when the security guards were talking about removing you from the building, I don't know what my reaction would be fight or flight, but I definitely would have shared your disappointment and shock.

I will also tip my hat to the NBL and Windsor Power, that was a classy act. Whilst I had my doubts on their success at the start, they have ran things the right way.

Due to numerous threats of legal action from certain people.......all of the above is my opinion only and it should be noted that I have never invested in the ABA. It is simply one mans opinion.
