Want to feel old? One year from right now, Jay Wright will be eligible for AARP. How the hell did that happen? And he still looks younger than me.
As always, we take this opportunity on Christmas Eve to wish a very Happy Birthday to the man who saved Hofstra basketball, as well as to the wonderful woman who saved me from decades of awkward conversations and coexistence with a spouse who didn't enjoy sports or mid-major basketball in particular. Some may think it coincidence both individuals came into my life the same year, but I know better. Happy Birthday, Jay and Michelle!
