PP RAY’S RAMBLINGS:
Dad calls son to inform him that he and his wife are getting a divorce. Son calls his sister with this bad news and she says they MUST visit their parents to help find a solution. Daughter calls Dad to say she and her brother will be out the next day. Dad tells his wife that ‘the kids will be here for Thanksgiving and they’re paying their own way.”

Cathy B $? Happy Steve Fisher is here as our program
Coach Steve Fisher retired Aztec basketball coach
Per 1st Veep Mike Raney Coach Steve’s basketball career at SDSU began in 1999.
Steve says in his first year as a coach he spoke at 87 events about the Aztecs basketball program
and he retired in April 2017.
Steve feels that transfers are the number one enemy of the basketball programs at most colleges. He never promised his prospective players anything except the opportunity the program offered.
His favorite saying is “Give with no memory, receive and never forget!”
Aztecs are currently 10-0 and one of the best teams since he’s been around. He does feel it’s ‘time’ for college athletes to be paid for their ‘likeness being used’ in advertising.
Steve generously gave us 4 tickets to the SDSU vs San Diego Christian game on the 18th.
Jan 7th – Cindy Silver – Signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer
