A quiet voice on my radio told me Chris Schenkel died yesterday. You probably don't remember him, he was an ABC Sports announcer. When I was ten, I talked five people into subscribing to my local paper, and "won" a trip to a Saturday basketball game with twenty other paperboys.

Our chaperon was a goofy intern, and kept us last (to keep us together). When the post-game TV lights went dark, he hustled us down to the courtside press table. How we must have looked! Chris Shenkel made small talk. Our chaperon got a handshake.
