Rudy Macklin well deserved honor!

Former LSU basketball great Rudy Macklin is a class act, and well honored this week.   His No. 40 jersey was retired at 5the LSU-Kentucky game last Saturday, and was unfurled from the rafters, along with other basketball greats Bob Petit, Pete Maravich and Shaquille O’Neal.  Rudy was the first great LSU player I followed back in the 80s when I first bought my LSU season tickets.  I have the same tickets on the front row by the LSU team and the LSU dancers.  But in spite of all the LSU teams since, I can’t remember enjoying seeing anyone play more than Rudy.  He heads up the Mayor’s physical fitness program in Baton Rouge, and we have been god friends for many years.  Congrats to Rudy, for a well deserved honor.  Rudy and I are pictured below shortly after he was honored at halftime.
