This was NOT the meeting to miss!
GCAC was treated TWICE on this special meeting night! First up, was GSHS Head Football Coach, Jamie Williams, with some X's & O's that many of us hadn't understood....until last night. Now I know what an A-gap is! Coach showed us how our donations are put to work and how they free up other funds for additional, much needed equipment to help better the GSHS squad. Great job Coach Williams!
Our second treat of the evening was surely a classic and, hopefully, something we will be enjoying each season. College Game Day was brought to you by the GCAC Sports Network....who knew we had a network?!? The brain child of Kevin Corcoran with an incredible, star studded group of additional talent, especially Dec McClelland with his dead-on Lou Holtz impersonation. Kevin's son Owen was a huge part of the background crew, and special guests included Barb Patty, David DeMeyer,
Dr. McCollough, & Bob Grant.
As with any TV show, commercials are just the price you have to pay, but when a commercial is sponsored by the McCollough Institute who's motto was "If You Can't Keep Your Chin Up....We'll Do It For You"!......well, that's creative juices flowing!
This was one of several....surely non-approved....commercials that graced the airwaves of Game Day!
It was hilarious to see unsuspecting interviewees, nervously taking questions from Chris "Kevin" Fowler, unsure of what to expect from a known comedian.
We now know that Dr. McCollough answers to many names....David DeMeyer is the Washington State flag bearer at each Game Day broadcast, we also know that Bob Grant is a man of few words, and Barb Patty, is a woman of many words. After a lengthy interview with Barb, eventually the Game Day segment ended returning to Barb's interview that apparently went late into the night.
As was appropriate, the evening ended with a standing ovation with whoops & hollers for the Game Day crew. Here's hoping they don't retire this year and will make a return trip to Gulf Shores, AL again in the near future!
Here is a picture from the Game Day "Set".
