Today was dedicated to the idea that my friend and all-around good guy Neal Burns — or Patrick “Neal” Burns, as we were required to write on the ballot — was to be elected as a write-in for the Epsom School Board, of which I am a member. And so it was … with 188 votes, which is a darned solid number for a write-in candidate.
That said, the gym was dedicated to the elections, which meant that the driveway was, once again, dedicated to Hoops For Heroes. ‘Twas cold but not windy, so the 1,000 went down fairly smoothly. Will be happy, though, to be back in the gym tomorrow with my new chum Bob Jandrue … right after Mr. Patrick “Neal” Burns’ first school board meeting.
Here’s an expression I like: It’s all good. Because you know what? It really is.
That’s 168,607 down, 831,393 to go to 1 million made foul shots.
