"My rule was I wouldn't recruit a kid if he had grass in front of his house.
That's not my world. My world was a cracked sidewalk." —Al McGuire

Make us pay!

Al's Run is this Saturday .. and we are woefully behind our $1977.78 goal.

You remember Al's Run, right?  It's not named for Al Gore.  Not Al Capone.  Nor Al Pachino.  Not even Al Jazeera.

It's named after Al McGuire.  You know, the patron saint of Marquette Basketball, and creator of the phrase "Cracked Sidewalks."

In an effort to jump start the fund-raising .. the Cracked Sidewalks authors are issuing a 24 hour challenge and will match all donations up to a total of $500 smackers.

$50 and $100 are super, but we wanna see some $19.78 donations, too.  Or how about $30, the price of one lower bowl game ticket.    You didn't want to see the big MU vs. NJ Institute of Technology game anyhow.

So .. let's find our credit cards, and double your dough, Marquette fans:  http://www.firstgiving.com/marquettefans
