    I have missed only 3 games at Paulsen.

    I was burying somebody each time.

  2. Default Re: When did you start following the football program?

    I was at the first game at Womack Field with Erk. I attended 3 National Championship games At which we were 2-1. Estimate that I attended more than 20 road games including Fla. State back in the glory days.

    First game, Central Connecticut... Rarely missed a home game since. Only 2 Saturday games I think.

    I attended the introductory press conference for ERK in Hanner Field House in 1981. Two weeks later, I graduated from GSC and began my career as a high school teacher and coach. My first game was our first playoff game at Paulson when the Eagles defeated Jackson State from Mississippi, 27-0. I knew what the wishbone was but that was the first time I had ever seen the flex or as we called it, "The Ham Bone." I became a devoted fan from that day and thank God that He has allowed me to follow the Eagles ever sense. It has been a great ride!

    The game that ended with a brawl in the pouring rain? That was quite an evening.

    I said "since the beginning" but I've been following GS sports since I started my freshman year in the Fall of '69.

    1983 started at GSC as new faculty member. Had skinny kid named Ham in my class in 84'. Worked for Bucky as a head coach in GSC women's sport for 6 seasons. Knew and admired Erk well from staff meetings. Many many home and away FB games around the country. Retired now. Given past Sat., may drop my season tickets and parking pass next year after a 30+ year run. Will open up 6 seats for a new fan group to take our place at Paulson.
