This game ball presentation took place last Saturday before the Oberlin-Wabash basketball game. This young man and young lady did the honors. Most of the fans were on their feet.
It was a special moment at mid-court.
As I reviewed the photos afterwards (the usual “should have done this…shouldn’t have done that”), I was struck by the two Oberlin players in the background. They never stopped clapping…never.
At halftime, two local Special Olympics teams played a game. Our Sphinx Club led the cheers and the fans were into the game.
I often refer to Wabash as “this good place”, a line I took from a Bill Cook Chapel Talk, as I recall. On this Saturday afternoon, I amended it to “this good and special place.”
