Nice to see a couple of my long-time friends from the K.C. area featured in a write-up from alma mater's sports information office. The memories A. recounts in this story are very familiar; for several months about ten years ago he and I met every couple of weeks for lunch at the Kabob House on Wornall Ave. to catch up about a wide variety of things, including his monthly letter to members of the national antique dealers association he presided over at the time. Fine visits. I met him and got to know his family after I was given an award named for his late wife, C.

My good friend, E., also appears in the photo. In the article, A. recounts some of the conditions surrounding the men's soccer program in the 1960s, and E. is the current men's soccer coach. He played futbol at alma mater at the same I was an undergraduate in the early 90s, he stood in my and D.'s wedding party in '03, and so on. When I miss living in Kansas City, these guys are high among the leading reasons why.
