Center of Attention
No, I didn't get any phone numbers from the Philadelphia 76ers Dancers surrounding me in the picture above, but it sure was nice to have so much female attention even if only for a few seconds.
If their dance squad is any indication, this is going to be a great season for the Sixers!
Speaking of Philadelphia's NBA team, tonight I had the opportunity to meet players and other members of the organization, such as General Manager Ed Stefanski, Assistant Coach Jim Lynam, and rookie Marreese Speights (at right), at a taping of the "Meet the Sixers" program that will soon air locally on Comcast SportsNet.
Sitting in the mostly empty Wachovia (perhaps soon-to-be Wells Fargo) Center, it was great watching the highlight reels, especially of the 1983 championship team, with Dr. J, Moses Malone, and current Sixers Head Coach Maurice Cheeks. Maybe someday soon, we'll see the streets of Philly packed like they were to celebrate the Sixers victory over the Lakers.
Until then, I'll just revel in the glory of my moment with the Sixers Dancers!
