Barry was a jock in college. He was president of the “Monogram Club”, the club for all students who’d earned a letter in any sport. The year after Barry’s term as president expired, FRANK HOOPER, track star, became president of the Monogram Club. Barry and Frank reconnected decades later in New York and spent quality lunch time talking about the good old days and the PROUD old days of their college athletic program. The college was the University of North Carolina which was just flattened by what’s been called the biggest scandal ever to hit any American university. It seems, in order to make sure the athletes made good enough grades to continue playing sports, THEY STAGED FAKE CLASSES THAT DIDN’T EXIST WHERE GOOD GRADES WERE HANDED OUT TO ALL! The scandal lasted for eighteen years. Frank comes to visit Sara and Barry this evening to explain how such a monumental scandal could destroy the reputation of such a great university.
