Board 41 Certified Basketball Official, Patiently
Waiting for the Next Thrill on the Court.
It was only 11 long months ago since when we last were on the court together for the first time. But, the CoronaVirus. In this pod, we pull up to a park in Massapequa, NY to talk of his early life playing sports in Elmont, his legendary LAX team, the technical foul he deserved on court to fuel him to become an official himself, to his ascendancy to becoming one of the top basketball refs on Long Island. All that more, my conversation with Marty, now.
