Spent 90 minutes with Jim Calhoun this week, as the first anniversay of his retirement approached. His mind is mercurial as ever … Interesting, insightful, complicated – never boring.
I asked him if there was anything crazy he wanted to do, and he immediately throught of the first President Bush, who went sky-diving in his 80s.
“I have no desire to sky dive or go bungie jumping,” Calhoun said, “I haven’t survived all this for a broken bungie cord to get me …”
Details are ongoing for the tribute to Calhoun planned for Gampel Pavilion on Sept. 22.
