1  The Fordham Forums / Fordham Football / Fordham Football - Happy Thanksgiving on: Today at 10:20:25 am
Folks:

I wanted to take a minute and wish everyone here and at FU a Happy Thanksgiving.  As many of you know, my dad, Dr. Dominic Balestra, died just over a year ago.  This is the second Thanksgiving without him and I miss him dearly.

One of my fondest memories with him occured just past Thanksgiving in 2002.  He and I drove through a small flurry to get to Rose Hill early on Saturday morning on Nov. 30, to catch a bus up to Parsons Field.  We found some other Fordham fans when we arrived and it was one of the few times I tailgated with my dad (he wasn't a big partier).  Anyway, we had a few too many, smoked a couple of cigars (he had his pipe) and best of all we shared the day of watching Fordham upset a heavily favored Huskies team!

Thanksgiving always makes me smile when I think about this day and how much joy it brought him...and how much joy I had in seeing him so happy.

My best to all, Happy Thanksgiving and GO RAMS!

does any remember coach ed foley.  was hethe one who was picked to replace clawson cuz he was players choice?  and oc? and never head coach? he failed miserably.  Is breiner him?

No. Foley is at Temple and Breiner at Fordham. Breiner is definitely not Foley.

What I meant was are they the same archetype.  I know they're not the same actual person (though I've never seen them together).  I meant it as a way to spark convo about whether our football team is headed where that one went after Clawson less.  Both Foley and BReiner had similar backgroudns...wanted by the players, no prior head coaching experience, recrutiing guru, offensive asst, pourous defense.

We should all attend whatever dumb ceremony the school has planned and protest in some way.  My father, who didn't even work in athletics, is more deserving of the honor than Frank (this is not a request for that, as no of us WANT the court named for him, it is merely to illustrate a point).

Maybe we pool money together, buy every ticket to the game where the ceremony is, and not show up.  Or show up and walk out.  NOt sure.

A vacation on Fordham's dime...enjoy.  To be fair, nearly every school does this. But it doesn't sit well with me.

This is an interesting point and so far I've seen nothing. If I were in charge of marketing I would make a serious push to get chase invited to the heisman finalist list. Nope I'm not crazy we've seen it with Steve McNair , I remember Gordy lockbaum from holy cross also. Fact is he's the best player in fcs an all time record breaker by the time the season ends.

While I in no way ever believe he would win , I think the school can get a lot of publicity by running a "get chase to the downtown athletic club " type of promotion . Get Fordhams name out there . You would be supposed on how the story would grow legs .

Madram:

Not the craziest idea...It is in NYC at a place with Fordham connectioncs...You can pitch it to the org in several ways.  I believe the trophy itself was modeled on a former Fordham football player...You could try...trophy looking to return home angle (even though I know Chase wont win).  It would be a cool story.

I will wear fordham gear and mumble about how great Mark Blazejewski was.

Like the past two years, I am def interested.  I hope to make it, but I cannot commit until that week or the week prior.  My inlaws live out in suffolk county and a lot of it is contingent upon us being out there to visit them.

Good for him!  He and Bev had the best total careers of anyone I have watched play in RHG.


Did you ever see Jean Prioleau, he was special!

WHAT HAPPENED TO BASEBALL AT FORDHAM.  When I was a kid that team was a national power...Now they barely make the playoffs.  Was it the Patriot League move that killed them or getting rid of Gallagher?

as a joke.....

Fordham should take over this project and name it Frank McLaughlin field at JEff Gray stadium.

I grew up three block from this location in Pelham Manor.  My elitist, snob neighbors would NEVER let that much traffic come through their town.

WONT HAPPEN.
