Through many years of playing and covering sports, I always wanted to get a game ball and on Saturday I got my wish ... well not exactly.
We were busy writing our stories after Northeastern won the PIAA Class AA volleyball championship inside Penn State's Multisport Indoor Facility, when I was handed the game ball from Northeastern's match by PIAA official Donna Brady.
Of course, I did nothing to deserve this. Amid the celebration the Bobcats simply forgot to take it home with them and Donna rightly figured I would see coach Matt Wilson or someone from the school's athletic department fairly soon, which I will as soon as I can.
Although, it does look really nice on my desk ...
