Purdue Alumni Game Set for Aug 2
The second Purdue alumni basketball game will be held on Saturday, August 2 at noon in Mackey Arena. I guess that’s when the A/C will be installed (*rim shot*). Tickets will be just $10 in the lower section, $5 upper general admission and I believe students can get a ticket apiece for free. Travis and @BoilerBall have the deets on who will be showing up (and there is a nice variety of classes represented over the past 25 years), including the following:
Gene Keady Ryne Smith (’12) DJ Byrd (’13) David Teague (’07) Mark Wohlford (’10) Roy Hairston (’96) (from the BS era!) Chris Reid (’09) Tim Ervin (’95) Chris Kramer (’10) Dave Barrett (’91) (no word on the length of Dave’s shorts) Troy Lewis (’88) (only played half his Purdue career with a 3-point line) Brian Cardinal (’00) Kenny Lowe (’04) Brandon Brantley (’96) (another classic from the time the BS founders were prowling campus) Chad Austin (’98) (once high fived me at midnight madness)
However, for the second time now in as many events, the staff of Boiled Sports has been curiously overlooked, despite how much time we spent at big games in Mackey Arena.
Check it out if you can.
