1–First time in the Mecca was to see Presque Isle vs South Portland State Chamionship game I was in 6th grade PI lost as the buzzer fell in love with basketball that day.
2—Being in the PIHS Band, running in full wool uniform and white buck shoes from the floor to the top of the Aud, dropping my trombone slide down into the open bleachers, and doing the band floor show on at half time in 1976.
3–Coaching on the floor vs Bangor Christian, and getting killed, but thinking I got to coach a game at the Mecca.
4–Broadcasting for WEGP the roof leaking, and the 5 overtime game. Listening to Del Hodgkins wonder what restaurant would still be open whe the game ended.
I hope to get to one more game before the close the meccca.
