Hearing this echo through the Breslin Center on Wednesday was debilitating regardless of whether you were sitting on the floor or high in the stands or watching the live stream like I was.

But the power and solidarity of the presence of so many respectable, honorable people in that one single place is so impressive and unforgettable.

"Godspeed.  Semper Fi.  Go Blue."

RIP Dennis Rodeman 1980-2015
