|ON BOFA, KNOWN FOR:|
|His supreme loyalty and caring. His solace, his tough love.
Every team from '95 - '00 loves Brian for coming home each year for a few
days to help coach, and to inspire the team with his love, his work ethic
and his outspoken criticism of just about everything unfair in the world…or
at least that which he deems unfair.
On BOFA '95, Brian was known for his quick wit, encyclopaedic mind, his
acerbic tongue, his principles, his fluency, his ability to rhyme, his
fierce loyalty, his artistic ability, his inability to back down, and
his perfect performances in the challenging Modern Musical
game. For his bleeding hands every day in practice for Stomp
in Steve's studio 18, and for leading the timing of Stomp.
For his music, his politics, his religious pronouncements. For Neil Young
in Youth Issues. For the team
t-shirts he designed, had made and delivered, year after year. For being
gallant, for always standing up for his beliefs. And for "the Snatch."
For his wonderful parents. For his integrity and devotion.
