A Press Pass for the 76ers-Denver Nuggets

A Press Pass for the 76ers-Denver Nuggets

by Joe Miele

I was a freshman at Drexel University in Philadelphia in 1978 and working at the campus radio 76ers Nuggets Press Passstation. One of the “perks” of the gig was the ability to score press box seats for local pro teams.

This night, I was lucky enough to go to the 76ers-Denver Nuggets game, which was the night that George McGinnis returned to Philadelphia after mcginnisbeing dealt to Denver for Bobby Jones.

I got to eat that God-awful press box food and go to the locker room after the game. My cassette recorder didn’t work but I had a blast acting like I knew what I was doing.
