...was going for some coffee at the Hyatt last Sunday morning before checking out to head home to California. In the lobby were six young attractive women who called out to me...."Hey, Rutgers" as I was wearing "the colors".
I went over to them and each, in turn smiled and introduced themselves. One was Chelsea Newton, another was Monique Oliver...the third was a new freshman (I believe Shaleena Richardson -- cute as a button)...one was a recruit on her official visit along with her mom.
We chatted for about 20 minutes and let me tell you....our gals are impressive!! Well spoken, friendly, vivasious. Chelsea asked me when I had graduated...."'78, ,80?" When I told them the 200th Anniversary class...ie. '66 each actually looked a bit taken aback (which, by the way, for the male ego is really, really good) four of them commented that they were surprised. Guess CVS has made an impression on PR????
As I finally rose to leave one asked..."will you be in Denver in March?" I guess the question through me a bit and I looked perplexed. "We'll be there...that is the Final Four and we WILL be there." I simply stated that when you are there, I will be as well....the response to which was, "we'll remember you and you will have a seat behind the bench!"
These gals are just special...it lessened the pain of Saturday's football game and made my trek home across country a bit more pleasant.
