October 2: Mr. CJ Swanson

13 Oct

It’s October now, and the calendar says that’s the month before November, which sounds like the month we’re supposed to reach 1 million made free throws. Good news: We’re right on schedule.

A few familiar faces showed up at the Epsom Central School gym on Oct. 2 — you might recognize Jim and Seth Bean up there (along with Mason, sticking his cute little mug through). And there was a less familiar face as well: that of CJ (“FRIDAY IS GAMEDAY”) Swanson, a buddy of the Beans, a former championship-caliber Pinewood Derby race car creator, and the young man who would, just five days after this photo was taken, unsuccessfully attempt to pry a fish hook from Mr. Jim Bean’s back.

That, I assure you, is a story for another day.

On this day, this is what’s to tell: We went pretty darned fast. Two thousand made free throws in about an hour and 11 minutes, bringing Jim Bean’s total to 46,000 assists, and bringing our grand total over the 96 percent mark — 961,007 down, 38,993 to go to 1 million made foul shots.
