Avid got me thinking about some UD fans who don't visit here like he does since I've been around. I remember those fast typers who gave a play-by-play right here on this site because the radio was only local (not streaming) in those days. We usually had a nice crowd here & I was so slow at hunt & peck that two more plays would be run before my comment arrived!

Remember these names Avid?
The Chef
John R
Detroit Flyer
Florida Flyer

Then these who are here only occasionally:
Chris R (founder of UDPride)
cards flyer
San Diego Flyer

How about these dads who joined us weekly:
Always Proud
Pittsburgh Flyer
Hawk Flyer
MW Flyer
Michigan Flyer60

Well, it is nice to have a few fathers here; but in this day of Social Media, one would expect the list to be longer. While I don't understand those who don't participate, I respect their decision. Sometimes I hear in later years that others read the Pride but never want to post for personal reasons.

As far as newer alums here; their absence speaks loud about the game attendance & interest shown by this college's students for football. It was so surprising to me since in the mid-fifties, at a small Div.3 school I attended, the stadium was "the place to be" on Saturday. And you should have seen the HUGE Homecoming decorations we built all night before. Ah, those were the days! Thanks for reading me.
