My husband and I both have the odd history of having had separate bad trips to St. Louis. I think it was whom we hung out with there that made the trip an unhappy one. Well, I am happy to say this past weekend's trip to St. Louis made up for any bad trips in the past. For the first time in 27 years our team won the tournament! The Shockers broke a record regarding the number of wins leading up to that crazy tournament later in March as well as a school record. They did it with style, too. Ron Baker even got the crowd to applaud Indiana State's best player, Odum...Five more wins please and then rest for a month, guys!
In 1987 I was Music Director at T95. Pink Floyd had just hit the road for their "Momentary Lapse Of Reason" tour. Since they were not going to play Wichita, my record company representative offered to fly me to St. Louis to see them. "Hell yes!" I said! Before the show I got to go backstage to meet a couple of the guys. My record rep had, about a week before, given me a Pink Floyd "Momentary Lapse Of Reason" sweatshirt so of course I wore it backstage to the concert. Problem was, it hadn't yet been approved by the band! I was standing in the dressing room when David Gilmour and Nick Mason came out to meet everyone. When I was introduced to them David Gilmour said to me: "Nice to meet you Phil...where the fuck did you get that sweatshirt?" It was a classic moment for me and one I'll never forget. Below is the picture with the infamous "sweatshirt."
