Memorabilia Entry

Some trinkets to add to the collection. Nothing of great uniqueness, but some historical value here.

First is a hat signed by many members of the 2005 - 2006 MBB team. You'll recall this as the team that GMac carried on his back through the Big East Tournament only to lose to Texas A&M in the 1st round of the NCAA Tournament. Signatures of note include McNamara, Arinze Onuaku,  Eric Devendorf, Terrence Roberts, Darryl "Mookie" Watkins, Demetris Nichols, and Matt Gorman.

Next is the program and a pin from the 1988 Sugar Bowl. This is significant not only as a reminder of the good old days when the football team was good enough to make it to major bowl games, but also a a constant reminder of the evil that is Pat Dye. Have a similar pin from the Hall of Fame Bowl that they made it to in 1989, but that doesn't have the same historical cache as the 1988 game.

Finally, I've got a set of trading cards circa, 1989 available from your Syracuse area Burger King. Of note are Jimmy B, Coach Mac, Derrick Coleman, and former player, now WR coach Rob Moore

I have several other Basketball yearbooks from the 80's, the most significant of which I've posted an image of here before from the 1979 - 1980 season, the final season in Manley Field House.

Also have the dancing, singing Otto Doll, but that's not quite as interesting as these other items.

UPDATE: Found some more interesting. Once upon a time after each game they would have a schmooze-fest at the Hotel Syracuse for the big-money donors (of which my father-in-law was one). Jimmy B and some players would show up and little kids would pester them for autographs (which in retrospect must have been highly amusing to 18 - 21 year old college students). In my 1985 - 1986 yearbook, I've found the autographs of one Greg Monroe, Wendell Alexis, and Derek Brower

Last but not least, speaking of the aforementioned Sugar Bowl, the team happened to be staying in the same hotel as my wife's family. Ladies and gentlemen I give you stalker-cam documentation of Mr. Don McPhearson in full late-80's regalia

Okay, done now, I think unless you want to see the home-made Joel Katz t-shirt my wife made in 1987...
