Basketball season is only, technically two days away from starting thanks to the new rule which allows programs to begin about three weeks earlier. That is good news for us die-hard hoops fans. Want better news? Of course you do, good news is the bomb diggidy. St. John’s Red Storm fans can get a super-early fix of hoops this coming Sunday.
Red Storm Report has announced that they will be live streaming the third-annual Dribble For The Cure this weekend. For those unfamiliar with the event, well, not only is it a good way to get an early hoops fix but it is also for a great cause. You know, kicking cancer in the rear and all.
The event is not just for the St. John’s men’s team either. The women Red Storm will be there as well as a slew of former, popular St. John’s players. Really, a great day for everyone who can get there to go watch hoops and be involved with supporting something that needs as much of it as possible.
For those of us who live too far away, can’t make it or are afraid of talking to humans in real life, Red Storm Report is being awesome enough to stream the event. According to the site, the event will go live at 11:25 in the morning and will include some exclusive interviews and whatnot.
It is also worth noting that if you don’t really care for hoops that much — for whatever insane reason that may be — you should still look into donating to the cause if you have some coin to spare. Nearly everyone knows someone who has had their life altered by cancer. Dribble For The Cure specifically deals with pediatric cancer. Helping kids live as full a life as possible is as good a reason as any to donate a few dollars. If you care to do so, you can go to the Dribble For The Cure website.
