A Long Strange Trip it Was

Kirby Mack was Columbia's last great fullback

Today's game goes back just 10 years to 1998 when the Lions made their first trip to the West Coast since 1934.

The Lions went all the way to the Bay Area and beat St. Mary's 20-17 thanks to a TD by fullback Kirby Mack and a solid performance by Mack's cousin Jonathan Reese who was a freshman that year.

Here's how the New York Times told the story.

All Star News
Incoming freshman receiver Rafael Lopez wil play in today's 12th annual East-West All-Star Football Game in Van Nuys. The game will be broadcast on tape sometime this week or next on L.A.'s "City Channel." Lopez will wear #42.

The tape of Lopez's all star game is being shown on television and That probably means it will be available on demand PDQ.

Said game was disappointing, especially since Lopez didn't play, as far as I can tell. He wasn't mentioned, too.
