If sports is an outlet, Gary’s youth need more of it, not less opportunity to participate in it. This is exactly what this has caused, a lessened opportunity for Gary youth to participate in something that will keep them out of streets!

Please, feel free to chime in with scores, hype, trash talk or just plain thoughts down memory lane…
