With the lockout in full effect, the Sixers and their website have to fill the need for content somehow. Luckily for us, they’re running a series of alumni interviews with some fan favorites from over the years.
First, a few random facts from my childhood. I was into collecting sports cards. For some reason I was more into basketball and football cards rather than the traditional baseball cards. I had baseball cards too, but not nearly as many.
There were two players whose cards I stock piled for reasons not entirely clear. No. 1 on my list of cards was legendary Detroit Lion RB Barry Sanders — perhaps my favorite athlete as a kid. I had over 200 of his cards, including the coveted 1989 Score rookie.
But No. 2 on my list was a little bit stranger. For reasons I’m not at all sure of to this day, I had upwards of 100-125 Clarence Weatherspoon cards.
And with that, here’s a highlight from the Sixers’ Q&A:
S.C:Did you ever hang out with Brett Farve while you were both at Southern Miss?
CR: We lived in the same dorm; Van Hall was the
athletic dorm so we had meal tables there for training. We always had
great sports programs. Southern Miss is a school that can produce great
football, baseball and basketball players.
