Thanks for the post Lee - I recall watching this as well. Hondo graduated with my Aunt from Bridgeport HS and he was in my father's ROTC company at OSU (along with Jerry Lucas) for a time. I followed the Celts growing up as we lived outside of Ohio and my father was a Celts fan back to the Cousy days. The guy calling the game has done pretty well for himself too.
"He simply ran out of his shoe!" Warfield on Byars - OSU 45 - ILL 38, 10/13/84
The ovation that he received...I am not sure that we have seen something of that magnitude or length for a long time...
Thanks, Lee. Great stuff.
Ironic that you posted it now. I drove through Bridgeport and Martins Ferry yesterday on my way from Cincinnati to Steubenville to visit my 94 year old grandmother, and after thinking of Hondo, I asked her to share her memories of Havlicek with me. Stopped in Newark to see my mother, who knew Hondo at OSU, and chatted with her about him, too. Nice timing.
Brings back memories Lee. I had forgotten that Fred Taylor and Bobby Night were at that game. Thanks for posting.
I love to go to Boston; just a great city. Without fault, every time I'm there wearing my Buckeye gear, someone comes up to me and starts up a conversation about their beloved Hondo. They are all great stories.
Edit: The best part of that video is that banner that says "The Buckeye Stops Here!"
