Tributes To Skip From All Corners

By David Scott - July 27, 2007

We probably shouldn't be encouraging libation of adult beverages on such a kid-friendly site, but there are exceptions to every rule. In memory and tribute to college basketball's own Skip Prosser, Hang Time would like to ask that the entire community raise a toast to Skip this weekend, preferably with a properly-poured Guinness. We'll be hoisting ours on Saturday night in the 10 p.m. hour.

Whether or not you choose to join us, please be sure to visit some of the following tributes and memorials that have been penned by some of the people fortunate enough to have come in contact with Skip:

Todd Archer at, of all things, the Dallas Cowboys' blog

Joe Posnanski from, of all places, the Barry Bonds Trail.

Todd Jones of the Columbus Dispatch
