Tonight local celebrities will join together for a common cause and a lot of laughs. Syracuse University stars C.J Fair and Baye-Moussa Keita, Olympian Erin Hamlin, Illusionists Leon & Romy and I will take part in the annual Sitrin Celebrity Classic Wheelchair Basketball Game in the Utica College Clark Athletic Center.

This will be my first year taking part and I’m really looking forward to it. Although the last time I was in a charity basketball game, I injured myself in the first 30 seconds. At least this time, I’ll be in a wheelchair and the only thing I can hurt is my pride with how embarrassing my play will be. I doubt my spaghetti arms can shoot that high.  My plan will be to just pass it to the Syracuse University players.  Surely they can make a shot or two.
