I mean, you just think about, the races were separate.  We didn’t go to the same churches.  I can remember Charlottesville that the Blacks sat up in the balcony.  So, there wasn’t a whole lot of things that would bring you together, but sports, they bring people together.  So, whatever your philosophies or thought processes might be, I felt like that was a way to kind of bridge some gaps.
