In 1970 I was still in prep school in New England..........

Ernie DeGregorio was the All American at Providence College. He drove a brand new Camaro convertible to the gym each day. Notice I didn't say school. Ernie's father owned a smaller much littler version of a 7-11 store in the Italian section of Providence and could barely afford anything as you can imagine. Do ya think? Marvin Barnes story was even better than that story on Ernie Now in saying all this I played basketball in college and was paid, in 1971, $10 an hour to work at the arena. I haven't shown up yet for work but I did get a nice check each week. Who said life was fair?
