And one of my sons is named Doug after one of my favorite all time great 3 point shooters. Mr Altenberger!!!Lucky guy you are! You got to witness and/or partake in:
* Eddie Johnson's last second shot in the home victory vs. #1 MSU and Magic Johnson
* home sellouts (~70,000) in the fall for Dad's Day, regardless of whom the opponent happened to be
* 14 cent beers at Dooley's/Kam's because the Illini football team was ranked #14 in the AP poll, and
* broken noses in Intramural football because punts were live plays and rushing the kicker was allowed
"And yes, I walked to class --- 32 block round trip, uphill both ways --- in record cold and snow. That's the way it was back then, and I liked it!"
