Yes, today is a special day at Robert Churchwell's Revenge. For it is the 37th birthday of... Robert Churchwell, the former Georgetown University basketball player for whom this blog is named.
This blog is so named because its author attended Georgetown concurrently with Mr. Churchwell, a very good college basketball player who played with such bigger stars as Alonzo Mourning, Dikembe Mutombo and Othella Harrington and...well, just didn't win enough games to make those particular four seasons the greatest four in the program's history.
But this blog's author is grateful anyway to Robert Churchwell for the good times he had at the games he attended as a student. "Lamont Morgan's Revenge" just missed the cut, and "Joey Brown's Revenge"...well, Joey's name just isn't distinctive enough.
So, what's Robert Churchwell up to now, on the 37th anniversary of his birth? Well, he appears to be the basketball coach at Harrison High School in Atlanta, where the boys' basketball team is apparently called the Hoyas.
Coach Churchwell even has his own blog, which is chock full of useful and helpful information for the young men he's molding down there in Atlanta.
So, good on you, Robert Churchwell, and Happy Birthday. Thanks for the memories.
