This was an excellent event. I got there early and chatted with Coach Brands for a while. He made me feel like I was the only one in the room, and was that way with everyone else. Total class.
About 50 people showed up. When he was properly introduced he made a great speech and praised Fran for bringing the BB team up (as we beat UNI today). Brands also said that he appreciates the support wherever "we go from Arizona to Iowa City to New York City" and emphasized that it doesn't mean a thing "unless we are winning." I love that attitude. In fact, I ran into someone else tonight in the 'hood and he agreed that we need that winning attitude at all levels.
Also sat at the same table with Ryan Morningstar -- what a nice kid.

SWEET I am jealous
Sounds like you had an awesome time...don't forget to post the photos
Tom Brands is one of a kind. That's probably a good thing. I don't know how the world could handle more than one of him (which is funny considering Terry).
Terry was also in NYC last weekend and attended a USA Wrestling meeting the night of the "Meet the Coaches" event. Tom joked at first that he and Terry switched places.
