Slightly off topic…

I was contacted by someone interested in one of the “Top 50 Events to Remember” in Wisconsin sports history.  It was the 1969 state high school basketball tournament.  The specific event was “the shot heard around Wisconsin.”  At the final buzzer, Beloit Purple Knight Lamont Weaver, made a 55-foot shot that banked in to tie the game.  Beloit won the game over Neenah in double overtime and took home the State Championship.  The date was Saturday, March 22, 1969.  The question:  Was there a dance at the Pop House that night… record jam or band (and who was the band)… or was the night reserved for watching the game?  Was there a TV on?  If anyone has any memories of what was happening at the Pop House that night, please leave a comment.  Thanks.

    That night I was in a “house” but it wasn’t the Pop House - it was Buzz and Rich’s Dal House!
