No. 9: Chris Webber calls time out
NCAA Championship game, April 5, 1993 — “I cost our team the game.” Chris Webber’s fabulous performance against North Carolina – 23 points, 11 rebounds, 3 blocks – will forever be overshadowed by his late mistake. Michigan trailed 73-71 when Webber snatched a rebound, dribbled upcourt and called timeout. Except the Wolverines didn’t have any left. Technical foul. The Heels sunk the free throws and walked away winners.
More Michigan fans care about football anyway. They ended up getting rid of their coach Steve Fischer and that was a big mistake. Look at what he has done at San Diego State!!!
I have been slowly watching some of the 8 hours of film that my sons Wilson and Hunter brought home last Sunday night from their 7 day trip to California March 21 to 27. Last night I saw them driving on the snow covered mountains near Yosemite National Park. They stopped the car several times and took filmed the beautiful snow covered mountains. At one point they walked up to a couple of deer and almost pet them.
The highlight of the clips for me was the site of the Sequoia trees. They actually walked through the base of one of the trees. Wilson commented, “This is a neat cave,” but actually it was a tree that he was walking through.

The assassination attempt on President Ronald Reagan occurred a mere 69 days into his administration March 30, 1981. He is the only president to survive taking a bullet thanks to surgeons at George Washington University Hospital.
Many key people were involved in the shooting that day. Had the assassination attempt never happened, many of the key figures surrounding the event would not be known today.
President Ronald Reagan
Reagan finished giving a speech to the AFL-CIO at the Washington Hilton. Just before 1:45 p.m., a man brandishing a gun called out to Reagan and then fired six bullets, four of which found their marks on four separate individuals. Reagan spent nearly two weeks in the hospital recovering at George Washington University Hospital.
Press Secretary James Brady was shot in the head by Hinckley’s first bullet and survived although he was paralyzed and confined to a wheelchair for the rest of his life. President Bill Clinton signed a gun control law in 1993 named the Brady Handgun Violence Protection Act or the “Brady Bill.” The press room of the White House is named after him in his honor. Brady currently serves on the Board of Trustees of the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence.
Thomas Delahanty was a Washington, D.C. police officer who was shot in the back by one of Hinckley’s bullets. He tried to return to normal duty but was forced to retire shortly after the assassination attempt.
