Sitrin's Marc DePerno stopped by this morning to update us on the game that will take place at Utica College in the gymnasium Thursday, April 10th at 6:30. Doors open at 6. The game will entail two, twenty minute halves of wheelchair basketball pitting the Sitrin STARS versus the “Celebrity Cruisers.” I am proud to say that again, I will be a celebrity cruiser playing basketball from a wheelchair.
