    Don't disagree. The main attraction of this is that it's one thing we haven't tried yet. The goal would be for Matthews to bring the ball upcourt,...

    Jeff,

    I ready your post on the Pete Newell film. I also probably wont be able to make it to the July 1st showing of the film, as I am going in for minor surgery on the morning of July 1, and may or may not be released in time or in shape to get to the theatre. If you do hear of additional showings of the movie, and you would like some company to watch the film, let me know. Id enjoy very much meeting both you and your father.

    Kevin
