If I have a claim to fame as a fan, it would be: The year I saw Duke play in person at the Garden, the Blue Devils went on to win the 2009-10 national championship.

If I were the boss of local sports, the one rule I would enforce would be: Get out and cover a wider variety of Saint Francis and other local college sports, such as field hockey and lacrosse. Increase exposure and hopefully local interest in those sports.
