These were lunchtime pickup games with business professionals. His team would typically consist of himself, two brand managers, an ad executive and a CPA. He would routinely yell at his teammates like it was the NBA finals.
    To be fair to him, one of the best basketball players ever is probably going to want to win every basketball game he plays.

    Cool graduation story.

    You have to wonder what he thinks about the state of college hoops in the Queen City at this point. His Bearcats were dominant for so long, then we got our act together, and, in a rather extraordinary flip of circumstances, took UC's place in a major basketball conference with them being relegated to second-class status, all because of football aspirations.

    So, not having your Muskie daughter pound on him with crossed arms and a "Go X!" while he's lunging into an expensive filet was the elegant thing to do. He already experiences enough indigestion over Xavier.
    In Cronin's first couple of years, Oscar would get pissed off and yell at him from his courtside seat. If I remember correctly, at one point he yelled at Mick to shut up when he was trying to give the team instructions.
