I was giddy for a moment after reading the above title to today's column. Alas, Dan is not leaving the Globe.
Instead, he is talking about the Holy Cross Men's Basketball team. Nothing like some Patriot League talk to get you fired up for March Madness. Maybe HC in the Tournament can be the catalyst for a truce between Dan and Bill Simmons. Those two are the only people I can figure would care for this column.
Completely Random Reference Watch:
"Fifty-four years. That's before Robert Parish was born..."
"...led the Crusaders past the Deacons five days after Jim Rice was born in Anderson, S.C."
