Tulane 2020 HOF Class

Post by PeteRasche »

Edit a year later: for those who missed this, this is year-old news but I bumped it on page two because Tulane finally set a date... Which means they are expecting things to be back to normal by September 2021. Thought y'all would be interested in hearing that. Some of the posts after my bump sound like folks either missed the announcement last year or think this is new news...

So... I "got the call" today. It came in the form of a Facebook message from our old Asst. SID and radio color guy, Lenny Vangilder (now writer for CCS). The 2020 HOF Class will include the 1991-1992 basketball team as a group. So I'm going into the Hall of Fame. Not gonna lie... even though I'm "only" part of a team, it's kinda... amazing. Like, when I found out, I was dumbfounded, incredulous, and a bit giddy (which has yet to wear off in a few hours). My kids got new respect for their pop.

Looking forward to this, whenever it may be. No date set yet, obviously everything in the Fall is completely up in the air (BTW, apparently Tulane has retracted their homecoming date because Jazzfest rescheduled for that weekend).

Congrats. Well deserved. Your kids are going to be bragging about their cool Dad to all of their (virtual) classmates for weeks. Enjoy it.

Fantastic Pete. Much deserved. The 1991-92 team was iconic and unforgettable.
Congratulations.
