Friday Morning’s Crabs and Beer

June 12, 2009 | Glenn Clark

Are you going to the LPGA Championship? I would, if it wasn’t golf.

Sorry I don’t have more to add this morning. I recommend you go to the audio vault and listen to Drew’s interview with John Gilchrist. For a guy who got a bad rap at Maryland, John has really focused himself on becoming a better basketball player and human being.
