In what year did you join the board for Push The Rock?


You wouldn’t believe me if I told you I was in the crowd at [famous sporting event]. (Share your story)

The 1944 World Cup qualifier between Sweden and Russia at the Old Silverdome in Detroit.  They grew grass turf outside and brought it in and sewed it together in patches.  It was so humid inside that a layer of haze was over the top of the building.  It was like a greenhouse.

If I could play on a Field of Dreams (or court or pitch or course), I would want to play against [famous athlete from another era].

Julius Erving and me… Nassau Coliseum…. Aba’s first slam dunk contest…. He would take off from the foul line to dunk and the crowd would think that he won.  But then… I would take off from half court and well, you said it was a dream.

My favorite Push The Rock story of a life God changed is:
