    Chris congratulations on the launch of your new show, a great idea. I grew up in Rochester, and I had the opportunity to watch Niagra, and Calvin Murphy, play St. Bonaventure, with Bob Lanier, great basketball. I would like to talk with Chris Lawler, and I am looking for a telephone number, or an off line email address that I could use to contact Chris. Ron Hawes
