The are certain days each year when we must all take a step back, stop what were doing, and remember what happened long ago. Today, as most of you know, is one of those days.
December 7, 1941 — “the day that will live in infamy,” as President Franklin Delano Roosevelt proclaimed it, may be long ago, but it is still in our minds… and rightfully so. A day that occurred (for most of us) before we were born still sits in our minds after thinking of military servants — some related to us readers — hurt, injured, or just there that fateful day in Pearl Harbor.
Before enjoying what it sure to be some great basketball, please just take a small time out of your day to remember one of the most iconic days in American history. God bless, all.
Now, back to basketball; below is a look at today’s schedule. I will be back at North Rockland to cover the championship between the Red Raiders and Beacon. I will stop by Mount Vernon-Nyack first since I’ll have time to actually watch the teams and talk to new Knights coach Ayo Hart, replacement to Patrice Wallace-Moore.
As usual, if you get a score update from another game, feel free to comment, e-mail or tweet me. Also, if you know of any missing games or teams on the schedule, please just let me know.
