A Royal Farewell to John Andariese, NYC Basketball Legend!

Last night we lost a legend in the basketball world. My friend Rich Wolber aka Staten Island Rich sent me a text message informing me that former Fordham basketball player & long time NY Knick broadcaster on TV & radio John Andariese aka Johnny Hoops had passed away. It didn't surprise me.

I personally had the privilege & pleasure of meeting John countless number of times over the last 25 plus years. I used to see him after Knick games in the lobby going back to the late 1980's. He was always friendly to me. In fact, when the King & I returned from our dream trip as he called it back in early February 1992, John saw us & said you should frame those ticket stubs.

 Since then, I used to always try my best to see John before Knick games when he did the color commentary on the radio broadcast in the late 90's until he retired. He always made time to say hello to me & he always acknowledged my presence. He was usually busy preparing for the game but it didn't stop him from saying a quick hello. He always came prepared with his notebook which included newspaper articles & box scores from previous games. John was very detailed & he always did his homework.

In 2014, he was honored by the Basketball Hall of Fame when they named him the recipient of the Curt Gowdy Media Award. I remember the Knicks honoring him on Garden vision against the Dallas Mavericks on February 24, 2014.

 He retired from broadcasting in 2012. I honestly believe he was forced out. That started his demise. The last time I saw John was at a Fordham Ram basketball game on January, 22, 2015 when they celebrated the 90th Anniversary of the Rose Hill Gym. I remember seeing him in the bathroom. He looked dazed & confused. I knew right then & there his days were numbered. On my way to work, I read that he had dementia. It makes all the sense in the world. Sad to say, we lost a great man. John may you rest in peace.

My deepest sympathy goes out to your family. I'll never forgot the way you treated me over the years. Thank you for the memories.

Thank you for reading & following along.

Yours truly,

Royalty is going to Western Canada over the first weekend in March!

Here's the game plan:

The King & I are flying to Calgary, Alberta, Canada on WestJet Airlines. We leave New York LaGuardia Airport on Friday, March 3rd which happens to be my special day at 7:30AM Eastern Time, we have an 2 hours & 11 minute layover in Toronto, Ontario. We're then scheduled to leave there at 11:15AM Eastern Time if we're not delayed for any reason. We're supposed to land in Calgary at 1:34PM Mountain Time if we're on time. Upon arrival, I'm renting a car from Budget Rent A Car for the weekend. I plan to meet some special people who I met on my way to Yankee Stadium a few years ago when they came to visit NYC. I'm referring to Patti & Jim Smart who happen to live in Edmonton, Alberta. They arranged to get us tickets so we can see the Rogers Place, their new downtown arena which opened up in October. By doing so, we'll be for the time being current members of Club 122 once again. Sunday night/Monday morning we leave Calgary, Alberta on a red eye flight that departs at 1:15AM Mountain Time on Delta Airlines & we're scheduled to land in Toronto at 6:58AM Eastern Time where we have a connecting flight that departs Toronto at 9:35AM & is supposed to land at 11:06AM Eastern Time at LaGuardia Airport if all goes according to plan.    
   
Friday March 3rd Red Wings at Flames 7PM Mountain Time

Saturday March 4th Red Wings at Oilers 8PM Mountain Time
                                                       
Sunday March 5th Islanders at Flames 2PM Mountain Time

If you're interested in going on this exclusive getaway royalty style just let me know so I can arrange to have you join us.

It's going to be a blast so why not come along for a "royal" ride.
