Half-Time Celebration Video

For those of you who didn't make it to the BC yesterday, here's a video of the half-time celebration. One of the Cracked Sidewalks team shows up around 1:08. Can you guess which one?

Good to see Murffius and Skyhook, posters on some Marquette message boards also in the lineups.

Also to note, sadly, many of the Al McGuire era were not there, notably George Thompson, which would indicate he's still unhappy with having his number usurped for the first month of the season.

I hope one day, Tom Crean and the Marquette Athletic Department find the magic mea culpa that brings GT back to the family. George Thompson Bobble Head Day. George Thompson Number Re-retirement Day. George Thompsonpalooza! Maybe have Lazar wash and wax GT's car every week for a few months? Something!

Here's the half-time video:

This is terrific. Thanks Hilltopper. Good to see NY Warrior and Murff out on the floor. I believe I saw Skyhook as well.

Thank you for sharing this.

You should link this on the Scout site too.

I would hope that GT had a different reson for not showing up. 99% of the top high school basketball players in the nation have no clue who the guy is. With the exception of some alumni, what GT thinks of the program has no bearing on it's future. Crean made laz change his number that was good enough.

Hopeufully GT had other obligations. If that's his reason he needs to grow up.

Didn't Amoroso still wear #43 last season even though Earl Tatum's jersey was retired the previous season?
