‘Excellence’ Gunn w. Raiders


I shot my former Gunn hoops contemporary and champion Matt Passell at the scorers table for his boy’s frosh soph game Tuesday and noticed a motto: “A tradition of excellence”. Reminds that after two years helming The Oracle I established an editors wall that included my scribbling on wall of RC-2 ” a commitment to excellence” that was actually of the Oakland Raiders, and true of them at the time thanks to Stabler and Plunkett and them. Unlike Sean Berry, I did not get charged with felony vandalism although the wall was scrubbed or painted over a couple years later.

passell Jr hit a clutch free throw to help Titans hold on to a comfortable 9 point win, 70-61 or so.

I predict Gunn 60 lynbrook 45 in varsity, starting in 9 clicks.Wednesday is a tough Pinewood squad there and Saturday is the dreaded Vikings of North Palo.

Update, knotted at 26, gunn in a zone, without Russell, rotating players, Lyn sticking around, give and go to lee


Gil heroics at both ends in final minute of half leaves the homies trailing by only 2, 32-30 at half, a block and a put back, but missed the and 1.

3Q: 8 point run and stating calm despite mistakes leaves Gunn still in it. 33 blue tip in leaves it 49-46
