We would like to thank the following people:
Lloyd Sixsmith Sporting Goods, especially Ed

    Lloyd Sixsmith Sporting Goods, a long-time fixture at 7554 Frankford Ave., was our sponsor and again did a great job with the T-shirts.
   When you stop in or call (215-624-6670) the store, please mention that you appreciated "Sixsmith's" involvement. Thank you!!
Ramp Playground -- Ed Carpenter.
Assorted referees  -- Brian Duross, Tim Dougherty, Ryan "Goose" Nase, John "Fat Ringo" Gaynor, Dan "Salamander" McLaughlin, Tim Smink and maybe others I forget for the moment.
Scorekeepers -- Ed "Huck" Palmer, Bill Smith, Brian Duross.
Timers -- Kevin Silary, Ed "Huck" Palmer.
Organizational staff -- Ryan "Goose" Nase, John "Fat Ringo" Gaynor.
Concession stand -- Kristen Silary, Anne Pacchiano.
Special thanks -- To everyone who participated, and especially to those who came back for the second day of action. The Wood guys, especially, were big-time clutch. All players and coaches were in attendance both days!! The guys even stayed around to watch the title game. Extraordinary.
Impressive gesture -- The Prep kids decided not to vote for MVP honors. As one put it, "There's no need to pick an MVP.
We were all in this together." I gave the trophy to the team. Maybe they can put it in the school's trophy case. I'm sure that
would go over great (smile).

POST-TOURNAMENT COMMENTS . . .

     Well the Prep continues to win just about everything athletic in the Catholic League.  I just wanted to thank everyone who came down for the tournament it was a lot of fun.  I espically want to thank the Wood kids you guys live real far away on the farms (Just kidding) but you came down 2 days in a row.  I also wanted to say THANK YOU to Brian Duross and Tim Dougherty for reffing the games today even through my constant heckling (It was all in fun though) and they didn't do a bad job.  Ted I think I know why we didn't like the Wood kids during the season, Because they are exactly like us.  They are smartasses and huge ball busters.  But when they do it to someone else it is hilarious.  I guess they're alright.  smile.  I also wanted to thank you Ted for somewhat controlling the madness of the tournament.  And by giving all of us an outlet to talk about high school sports.  But as always I will not admit defeat I believe that if the rain had not come down and we had our full squad form the dya before the tournament would have been ours.  So Prep wins by default.
---- GOOSE
   (Ted's note: Thank YOU, Goose. You did all the behind-the-scenes work. It indeed would have been interesting to see what would have happened without rain.)

Yooo Ted,
    Since some of us North kids got caught up with baseball games and didnt get the privelage to play in the Fan Tourney.......How about another year of eligibility????
---- Hannan

   (Ted's note: Maybe some year we'll have an Alumni Fan Tourney -- smile.)

     Well the Fan Tournament was a huge success.  Day one was great with a ton of people showing up.  It is a shame that it had to rain and that certain teams were not the same the next day.  I was quite impressed with the turnout of all the teams especially Bonner, WOOD, and Prep who all may not live too close.  Ted, thank you very much, it was a great time and I hope you can keep it up for many years to come.  Judge guys, maybe we'll win a National College Fan Tournament someday in the Future.  As long as we don't play any Ivy League schools with the Prep or any schools with Ted Murphy and his boys.
Thanks again Ted,
---- John "Fat Ringo" Gaynor
     P.S. -- Yo Koz, those 3's in the consolation game were a masterpiece.  I have never seen the ball hit the backboard so hard and go in.
   (Ted's note: Thanks, FR. I also hope we can keep it going. I just wish so many other things didn't get in the way -- proms, trips, spring sports, weather, etc. It will be tough to find two guys with the kind of passion that you and Goose have exhibited.)

Ted,
   thanks to you and everyone who was involved in orgainizing the fan tourney it was alot of fun and a great experience. i agree wit Nase that the reason we prob didnt like them so much was because we are pretty much the same. i would like to thank him for all the work he did for the tourney (yes a wood kid is thanking a judge kid)...and i want to also give him some credit he is a solid athlete and a pretty good basketball player...i am going to agree with him again and say if it did not rain we probably would have seen a Wood - Judge final which would have been interesting. i think this because we shot alot better yesterday than today as the stats indicate...but if that final would have happened would this mutual respect between judge and wood have been reached??.....well thansk again for a great season and a fun weekend to everyone involved....
---- Blair Klumpp
    (Ted's note: One of the great joys of the Fan Tourney is watching kids come together and realize, hey, they're just like us. I see it every year with the City All-Star FB Game. Enemies get thrown onto the same team and become friends. Friends for life, in some cases. Thanks for being part of things, Blair. I do miss the 'fro, though -- smile.)

Ted,
   who won the deep sub showdown, Big Joe or Skip?
---- anonymous
   (Ted's note: Skip was there Saturday, but did not return Sunday.)

  Hello, my name is Matt Erbele, and I played on the Bishop McDevitt team for
the Lloyd Sixsmith Fan Tournament on Saturday, April 13, 2002.   If you dont
remember who I am, I am #3, the one who was ejected from the McDevitt vs.
Wood game.  I for one am pretty pissed that I was ejected because I think I
had the right push and elbow the members of the opposing team.   The reason I
think this way is because Wood had people on their team that played
basketball, and the whole point of a fan tournament is for the fans to show
what they can, so I made up for this atrocity fouling as much as possible. 
The players already had that chance during the season, that is why I feel no
remorse for my actions.  Also, I saw a lot of Wood guys there that talked a
lot of trash during the basketball games but didnt say a word during the fan
tournament. Air horn guy talks a lot trash but then doesnt back it up when
he meets people in person.  And Troiese, or

however the hell you spell ur name, you like a real hard ass cutting your
shirt as soon as you get it.
---- McDevitt Football!, kick some ass 2002
   (Ted's note: Pat Thompson was a starter for Wood in '01,
but didn't play this past season. Supposedly, Kevin Crooks
played varsity at a suburban public school, but not at Wood
after transferring back in. We didn't have that covered in
the rules. AHG never said boo to anybody, that I saw. His
e-mail address was posted all season and assorted knuckleheads
gave him all kinds of abuse . . . Meanwhile, we were pretty pissed
that you had no intent to actually play basketball. Why'd you
bother, Matt?)

   Erbele, I was the official of the game you got tossed from and I was the one who actually threw you out and my partner, Tim Smink agreed.  You got tossed because you had two easy blatent technicals.  So on the second one, we just tossed you out.  The fan tourney is supposed to be a good time to play bball not to act tough or show your strength or settle any differences you may have with players from other schools.  If anything, you should meet new people.  The WOOD guys were a great asset to the tourney this year and were a main reason for our success so give them a break.
-----Fat Ringo
   P.S. -- Ted is it true that I was voted most accurate official of the tourney?  Koz and co. seemed to think so.
   (Ted's note: I thought I was the best ref. -- smile. John, I say this with all sincerity. On your two
foul shots in the one game, you showed a great rotation on perfect swishes. Very impressive!)

Yo Fat Ringo,
   Thanks for the compliment, usually I just close my eyes and shot it as hard as possible and hope it goes in. I would like to take this oppurtunity to thank you Ted for everything you have done for us in our years as high schoolers. You have truly added another dimension to the numeous sports seasons which makes the games even more fun to play when you read all the stuff we talk on this site. Without this site I would never even know half of these guys, but thanks to it you really get to know a lot of great guys and there is almost a sort of bond around the catholic league and yes the prep is even included in that. Most people would probably think that you were crazy for puttin a bunch of teenage boys who already had a dislike for each other on the same basketball court. Ted you truly are a peacemaker. I want to also thanks Fat Ringo and Goose for all they have done. I think that in the last few years we have all set a standard for fans, I'm not sure that anyone can follow in our footsteps but these last few years will go down as some of the best ever for high school spirit in all sports. To Brownie, Goose, Fat Ringo, Kev Hanlon, A. Ryan, Air Horn, T Suds, and all those great fans thanks to you all we have truly made our high school years memorable.
---- Fat Fat Koz
(P.S. I vote T Suds as MVP of the tourney. He played on a weak Roman team and was gettin no calls, and He is very graceful on the court.)

   (Ted's note: Koz, you continue to impress me with your outlook and maturity. You truly do "get it." As your life continues beyond high school, I wish you nothing but the best. The Bonner guys had to come a long way to play in the tourney. I know you were the driving force behind Bonner's team.)

Dear Fat Ringo,
     I got nothing against you, but it wouldn't be fair to say accurate and
you reffing abilities in the same sentence.  In fact, none of the refs were
calling anything.  I would rather be playing under the watchful eye of Red
beard then be reffed by you guys(and for the record, I hate Red beard, who
actually is able to ref all sports, and suck at doing them all too). 
However, I know that you guys aren't professional or anything, so I really
don't care.  That is why I just started to hack everyone in sight just to
see what you would call, and much to my surprise, I didn't get called for
anything.  That's pretty damn bold.  At least I got one hell of a free
t-shirt out of it, and let me tell you, those things are RAD.   I did have
fun too.
----TATE
   P.S.  Does anyone else know about Red beard, and how horrible he is as a ref
in all sports?  I think we should actually get in contact with him, and hear
his side of the story.
   (Ted's note: Thanks, Tate. Fun was the goal.)

   First off i would like to thank ted for settin up this whole thing.  It was a
blast to play in.  yet i would like to voice my thoughts on the negative
feelings toward the prep.  it is understandable that people are tired of
losing to the prep in many things and thats where all this hostility comes
from.  But to say that the prep wins by default because it rained on the
first day of competition is total and complete bull.  Just because some of
the teams were missing a couple guys doesnt mean that they could have won
anyway.  Cause the prep was missing 2 of their better players also.  I think
having the games on seperate days helped a couple of the larger teams because
they would have been dead tired by the end of the day.  So to all the haters
out their, just relax and accept the consequences of not being apart of the
best team ever. MALLA FALLA CHAMP!!
---- I love the prep
   (Ted's note: Yeah, Prep was missing two decent players Sunday. Same
for Judge, if not more.)

Ted,
       The tourney was alot of fun, and i appreciate the efforts of anyone who put any work into. All the officials were pretty good. We are definitely are alot like the Judge kids, and I agree with Goose that we probably didnt get along for that reason. Erbele, at least I came to actually play basketball. I didnt talk any trash at the tourney to McD kids at all...we just went out and kicked your asses. We saved our talkin for prep. Who still destroyed us. You wanna talk about talkin trash and not doin nethin in person, go talk to your teammates who sent me hardass emails. I have never once said on this website, or in any emails to anyone, that I was gonna do anything to anyone so i dont know what your talkin about. Kevin "If I can see the rim, Im shooting" Crooks played some at Neshaminy, but its not like we brought an NBA draft pick or anything. Koz's 3 were beautiful, but I would like to take credit for the tourneys ugliest shot(just ask Ted). Congrats to the Prep, and thanks again for the effort of anyone involved.
---- Air Horn Guy
   (Ted's note: Thanks, Mike. I know you took much abuse via e-mail. I also know you never returned the fire on the site. You were our Student Reporter of the Year, hands down. And more.)

   Just like to thank everyone that put the fan tourney together, It was good times and i cant wait til next year it wont really have the same glamour of the previous years without koz nase gaynor and the rest of the guys, but im sure me n Byrd will try to help keep everything going after use leave. Koz thanks for your vote for mvp. Some of the stuff that was going on in our game against north is agaisnt the law in some states but what you gonna do. but the best site of the whole tourney is seeing nase, gaynor, and koz running the floor true Poetry in Motion. Thanks ted and everybody.
---- Tom Sugden
   (Ted's note: Poetry in s-l-o-w motion -- smile.)

   In response to the people who have been asking why did I bother playing last
Sautrday, the answer is this.  I suck at basketball, I know that, so I
decided the night before at a party at Dustin Lahiff's house that I was going
to get myself kicked out of the game. I accomplished this and had a good time
doing it, and the rest of my team could care less about the game either.  Im
not gonna lie, I HATE wood guys . . . This may sound cynical but i
only feel this way towards wood guys, and lasalle too.  I met some of the
guys from other schools like bonner and they were cool cause they didnt take
it so seriously.  So, mellow out ted, and quit brown nosing air horn guy.

   (Ted's note: I'm fine. You're not. But that's OK. It wasn't supposed to be

Ted,
Sorry I couldn't play in the Fan Tournament this year. I had a lacrosse game at 1 o'clock and couldnt make it. I wish I coulda made it, but lacrosse comes first. I would've really enjoyed crossin over Air Horn Guy and Salamander and than laughin at Tim Dougherty from Wood. Thanks for the great season fellas. I hope to see all of you fellow underclassmen back next year.
