As a local note, Mike Rapier ’87 arranged for the Phoenix area alumni to gather, along with some of those from that other school. While we were outnumbered, we demonstrated more spirit, and stayed through to the end of the game. Many of those Dannies bailed after the third quarter. Here is the art work on the back of Mike’s son…..Some Little Giant.
You may remember Jon Nicosia ’61 Phi Psi. His son, Christopher Nicosia ’94 and I talked a great deal while watching the game. He is an Executive Chef at an upscale Italian restaurant in Scottsdale. He remembers his dad bringing him, at a young age, to a Wabash Bell game. There was nowhere else he wanted to go after that visit. The game and conversation made for a wonderful Saturday afternoon. I must say, that the weather and temps were warmer in C’ville than here in Phoenix during the game. But all that changes quickly.
