Indiana, basketball, and dad

My dad was a good basketball player -- really good I think. His team in high school was the Ladoga Canners. My mom told me about an article in the Indianapolis Star about a basketball game my dad played in -- the writer said something along the lines, "Mort Kimmel was the standout in the game -- he did everything but mop the floor afterwards."

Only a month or so ago he told me, or rather I overheard him tell someone, that he tried to get on the Purdue basketball team as a walk-on. He laughed, saying he was the last one cut. Typical dad, a self-effacing remark -- but that was impressive to me!
