Juwan Howard Is Still Alive

Seriously, his name just scrolled across the bottom of my Zenith. He signed with some team. Anyway, his name always reminds me of a story.

Back in High School, Ted Stryker and I head to a random Bucks - Washington Bullets game. I really think they were still the Bullets back then. As we approach the BC, we pass a scalper and the following transpires:

Scalper: "Twenty bucks for lower bowl."

Us: "Nah, we'll get something cheaper"

Scalper: "There ain't no 6 and 10s (dollar seats) left!"

Us: (Realizing it's like a Wednesday night against the fucking Bullets) "Really?"

Scalper: "Yeah, they've got Juwan and that other guy (Chris Webber)."

How's that for a sales pitch!

Us: "Why not, here's 40 bones."

We were totally had seeing as how the BC was about 40% full. It looked like a Marquette-IFPW crowd. Whatever. We've laughed at "there ain't no 6 and 10s," and "...and that other guy" hundreds of times since then.
