Stop posting off topic stuff in the Hanging at the Al board. The last one got shut down and I’m sure this one will too.

1.  Read all about him in Wikipedia.
2.  A great man ahead of his time.
3.  His family/father was an immigrant and was a  grocer.
4.  Interesting unintened comparison between a topic in Superbar and Hangin'.  By far, 85%, of views by  Hangin' folks.

Yeah, because the main purpose of the site is to discuss MU basketball, so that’s the board most people follow most closely. Unfortunately your topic has nothing to do with Marquette basketball. I’m guessing there were some people who came to the topic (myself included) thinking maybe it was related to Marquette basketball, given that’s what Hanging at the Al is for.

I will not go for the bait.  Yes, you are correct, my appology for wasting your time.

Perhaps Fr. Groppi was a Marquette basketball fan, ha, just kidding.

In my mind Milwaukee, Marquette and M.U.basketball go together.  I'll have to be more careful and seperate the three things.   At 77 (I'll play the age card) some things just seem unified.

Wadesworld is an ageist!
You actually have a degree from Marquette?

Quote from: muguru
No...and after reading many many psosts from people on this board that do...I have to say I'm MUCH better off, if this is the type of "intelligence" a degree from MU gets you. It sure is on full display I will say that.

I have worn my MU sweatshirt while at Groppi’s Market, but I have never gone there right before or right after a game.

Better coach: Wojo or Groppi?

Discuss.
