Stories I tell, a familiar face at the NCAA tourney

The guy looked so familiar.

"Is he a coach?" Jennifer asked?

No, that wasn't it. Jennifer and I were at NCAA tournament first and second round games in 2003 in Tampa.  It was a rare "date" for the two of us with Sarah a couple months shy of 4 and Zach just past his first birthday.

The familiar face was several rows away. It bugged me that I was having trouble figuring out who he was. Was it a teacher? A neighbor? Some local politician? I puzzled over it probably for about half a game.

Finally, I had it! I turned to Jennifer and said, "He delivered our son. That's Dr. Von Thron."
