I was introduced to Chris Washburn at a VSAF after-game function

Lord knows why, though. VSAF used to have get-togethers after home games on the floor level of U-Hall by one of the main exits from the floor itself near a staircase. Alcohol was available (can't remember if it was free or just cheap - I always had a bourbon on the rocks) and - a big reason I came - after a while somebody would come distribute still-warm mimeographed box scores to all who wanted them. I was standing by myself drinking my bourbon at one of these - back when I still had a ponytail no less - when a middle-aged woman leading a very tall kid with a goofy grin on his face came right up to me and said something like 'I'd like to introduce you to Chris Washburn.' We chatted for probably 30 seconds and she led him away to someone else. Other than his general goofiness, I was also struck by how short his legs were for someone that tall vs. how long his body was. Weird experience.
