Jeez, This is Not Good

Greenwich beat Brien McMahon in boy's basketball the other night, 62-39. The win clinched the Cardinals' standing in the FCIAC playoffs; so congratulations to coach Bill Brehm and company. They play Stamford tomorrow in the tournament.

So what's the "not good" part, Rob?

From my friend Paul Silverfarb, the Sports Editor at the Greenwich Post:
...there was still some nerve-racking moments after the game, as shots were fired outside of the high school in Norwalk.

According to the initial police report, officers were called to the front of Brien McMahon High School at 8:28 p.m. when witnesses said they heard gunfire. A 19-year-old Hartford teenager, who was with a cousin from Norwalk, was shot in the upper right thigh. Officers said the boy was taken to the restroom after the incident where police saw the wound on his leg. No one else was injured in the shooting.
Scary stuff there, but don't let it serve to make you fearful of attending a game at McMahon or anywhere else. That would be silly, as I have broadcast games from there for years. I've never felt threatened at any game and security officials do everything to make sure we're all safe.

Don't make any more of it than that.
