If I have a claim to fame as a fan, it would be: After Eric Dickerson dropped his Sharpie while signing autographs at an airport, I picked it up and handed it to him. He looked at me and said, "Thanks."
If I were the boss of local sports, the one rule I would enforce would be: If the PIAA doesn't wake up and separate private and public schools in the playoffs, I would have all AA and A schools secede from the PIAA and form the Pennsylvania Small Public Schools Association, the PSPSA.
