Episode 9 — Returning to the Old Gym, 75 years later
We're gonna start doing more Weird Creighton History episodes that bring in folks besides just Micah and Rick. No offense to them, but c'mon, they're not the only two people in the world, and they should stop acting like they are. For this episode, Micah interviewed Doug Ryan as he was taking a tour of campus. Doug, 86, is a lovely guy. He basically grew up on campus, with Creighton Stadium and Old Gym as his childhood playground. He was also a waterboy for the Creighton men's basketball team (in the 1940s!). Hear what Doug has to say about his first visit to campus in nearly 75 years. And be sure to read the story about Doug here.
