Attended last night’s riveting Siena-Iona men’s basketball game in New Rochelle, N.Y. Game was pretty bad, but one moment stood out. During a break a fan was escorted to half-court to try and make a shot. The odds of success are probably, oh, 1 in 800 or so, and the prizes for such achievements can range from a new car to two airline tickets to a Foot Locker shopping spree.
“If Kevin makes this shot,” the announcer bellowed, “he wins a free night at the Stamford Holiday Inn!”
Alas, Kevin missedâ€”but won. He was given a T-shirt instead.
