     My high school basketball career hardly started auspiciously. During the 1980-81 season, I was on the JV team...we finished with a 4-21 record. Yet, in our locker room after every game a boom box would blare "Celebration" by Kool & The Gang. Just what the hell we were celebrating I didn't know then and still haven't a clue.
     The song seems to be much more conducive to the atmosphere on the Diplomats team bus after a 1976 road match. It must have been a victory, as everyone is smiling and enjoying some suds, even if the best brands to be found were Lite and PBR. Thanks to Paul Cannell for the photos.
