I had a great meeting with V Foundation CEO, Nick Valvano, the Dick Vitale Gala Coordinator, Mary Kenealy-Barbetta, and Gala Co-host, Joe Barbetta.  We are working hard on next year's event honoring Roy Williams and John Calipari.  Reserve your tickets now - May 20, 2011.  It will be a SELL OUT, just like previous years!

I had a great time in Boston for two days.  My wife and I took in all the wonderful sights of this terrific city!  I always enjoy spending time in Boston and of course, I had to make a stop at Fenway Park to see the Red Sox.  We shared time with Larry Lucchino, CEO and President of the Red Sox.  I also had the chance to catch up with Mark Herzlich, All-American football player from Boston College, who is a cancer survivor.  Mark was honored at my gala for the V Foundation in May.  He is a terrific guy!  My good friends, Howie Schwab and Mike Soltys, from ESPN met us at the games and we saw the Red Sox battle the Angels.  We had a terrific dinner at the EMC Club, arranged by Jon Dienstag of the Red Sox.  Fenway is such a special place to watch a game - a true baseball lovers ballpark!
