    Interview: The Boogie Man aka Scott Spicer

    The Card BBall team did great this year-but didn’t hold on long enough for me to finish my Card Fan Hall of Fame interviews.

    We still have 3 super fans left to honor-The Boogie Man aka Scott Spicer, The Referee Shirt Waver aka Stu Grossman, and The Runner (or Cha-Cha Guy) aka Jeff Blume.

    We may wait ’til next year on Stu and Jeff. But Scott deserves a spot now.

    A young man with Downs Syndrome, Scott has been a Card fan since he was 8 years old in 1979. Unfortunately, he can not express himself well through words.

    But…he can dance.

    “It’s difficult for him to put into words what he feels.

    But, Scott tells me his actions speak louder than words. ”
