"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

Happy Birthday, Al.

Today is Al McGuire's birthday.

You know what he would have wanted?

A donation to Al's Run.

How about $19.77 ? Or maybe $76.77 ? $67.59? Or how about 295.80?

Click here, and plop down a few bucks, your annual homage to our patron saint. Al would want you to: http://www.firstgiving.com/MarquetteFans

So far, 36 hours in, we're off to a fast start, but have a ways to go.

Also .. if you are feeling rich .. last year, we had some great success with 1-hour match-offs. Tell me your maximum "match" and I'll post it .. all the pledges we get in that hour, you match. Even a $100 match works well. Worked like a charm, to double your money. (Email: Hilltopper91@gmail.com)

It's time to cowboy up.

Let's get the title right -- he is the "Blessed Al."

Under the Doctrine of the Roman Catholic Church, an applicant for sainthood must have two verified miracles in order to be considered a saint. Clearly the Marquette Kentucky game in 2003 that got us into the Final 4 was Al's first miracle.

One more and he'll be up there with St. Vincent of Green Bay.
