On this date three years ago my childhood friend John Cain passed away of a heart attack.
He was 52.
John was a great friend. As teenagers we spent a lot of time together.
In the 8th grade we played on the same intramural football team. I was the QB. John was the best player in the league. Wherever I threw the ball, John was there to make me look good. He was super fast.
John was a south-paw who lived on Seeley Street.
Awesome baseball player too. Good defensive player in hoops.
I hope everyone has a wonderful day.
Hope everyone has a wonderful Holiday.
It’s Christmas Eve…Back in the day I recall the big thing was attending Midnight Mass at Holy Name.
Our guy, Jackie Ryan…
This incident in Brooklyn breaks my heart. If you come across an attack, do all you can to help the victim. We can’t allow these punks to get away with this behavior.
Bishop Ford High School Alumni that either played basketball or otherwise was an alum.
This is open to all whether you are from Ford, Xaverian, Nazareth or Loughlin.
We will have our Basketball Reunion/Holiday Get Together on Friday Night December 6th at The Kettle Black in Bay Ridge on 3rd Ave and 87th Street beginning at 6pm.
Please feel free to share this to anyone….be it teammates or opponents. The goal is for a good time to be had by all sharing stories and laughs.
