Pangos Dream Classic: Media
Luncheon Today @ Lawry's--(Jan. 3, 2003)


What:   9th Annual Dream Classic
When:    January 4, 2002
Where:    UCLA Pauley Pavilion
Who:    Loyola vs. Mayfair
   Centennial vs. Carson
   Mater Dei vs. St. Vincent-St. Mary
   Lincoln vs. Vallejo

Since the media luncheon for the Dream Classic takes place today at 12:30 p.m. at Lawry's The Prime Rib, we thought we'd put out a little reminder for those who haven't yet made up their minds about attending.  On the game front, we've heard from Dinos and read what Ben Bolch has to say in the LA Times, and it looks like there are just a few $10 upper-level tickets remaining, so if you haven't gotten a ticket yet, get one today, because this could be a sellout. 

The media luncheon today should also be fun.  It will be a chance to rub shoulders with some of the top high school athletes in the country, many of whom are destined for great college, and in the case of James, pro careers.   And if you haven't had the pleasure, you can also ask Dinos Trigonis all the questions you want....Of course, he won't answer, but that's ok.....And, more importantly, it will be a chance for all the media guys to get together and eat lunch, not that anyone wants to hang around with them, but hey, that's why they call it a "media luncheon."  Really, we're not exactly certain what will happen at the media luncheon, but we'll report on it so it will not be a mystery to anyone who has to miss it.  Seriously, this will be a great time to meet the players, meet the coaches and get into the spirit of the Dream Classic.  And the food will be pretty good too....See you there.
