A tidbit from the Emerald Isle...

Everyone's favorite big doofy white Orangeman is going to be playing professional ball. No I'm not talking about Craig Forth... or Billy Celuck... or Elvir, or Reafsnyder... Christ we've had some guys that have fit that description.

No, Matty G is headed to Ireland to play professionally. He will play for the Cork County Neptune of the Irish Super League, the top league in the country. His professional salary, $425 a week. May the luck of the Irish be with ya Matty. He was one of those guys I wish could have seen more court time, but he gave us some solid minutes during his 5 years around town. If only he could have had more of a low presence and not desired to be a shooting guard...


In other news, the Carmelo K. Anthony Basketball Center has had its groundbreaking ceremony. More on this later...

Thats good news, I agree, he sometimes looked good for short moments off the bench, and sometimes gave a spark. Maybe his skills will translate better to Euro ball...Good luck, for a former upstater and Orangeman...(or just Orange)
