I know a ton of people of from around our city & state were super pissed when local high school point guard jon scheyer picked attending duke over my alma matter, the university of Illinois… we all heard the boos at Wrigley, on the ice at the blackhawks game… but now that he’s headed to the final four w/duke.. do all those haters still blame him? Will they once again claim him as one of our own?
A very short time will tell as march madness ’10 comes to an end w/ scheyer & team taking it to the final stages! As for me, I’m just throwing a shoutout to him here because he has demonstrated mad skills on the court, has been a good sport & role model, and is simply a product of our community… so wish him all the best! Even if he did sell out! haha…. kidding man… bring home something substantial to make the heat worth it!
