Pershing and I started Kindergarten together at Lincoln school. We all called him "Snookie" from day one through high school, don't think I ever called him Pershing. We could see his house from the playground area at Lincoln and I was envious because his dad had a stock car parked there.... 555 the Triple Nickel.

In fifth grade, our class played the other fifth grade class in basketball (at that time we used the old "girls" rules). Three players on the defensive half of the court and three on the offensive half. I played on the defensive half and got the ball up to Snookie in the offensive half where he scored most all our points. A great team effort and we smoked them..... our teacher was really proud because that was the first time her team had won in many years.
