What a wonderful story about John Wooden's grandson scoring the final basket before Pauley Pavilion closes for renovation. And how gracious of you to share the story since I know from your posts that you and your family are USC fans. As always, your "Around the Blogosphere" is chock full of great information.
Thank you,

It sure is, Tom. Lucky you!

At least I've met Jane Powell and attended a special SEVEN BRIDES event in the past...but I'd sure enjoy another one! I hope you have a fabulous time, it's certain to be a great experience!

Best wishes,
