"i know many people here in the united states their kids need
have nothing so we can make a difference." but then he had another idea. so i was going to go door to door and what i first did was i called the milwaukee wave and a gentleman named larry and his assistant bruce just said meet us at 37th and wisconsin and we will see what we can do." "he just called us and we were very happy to do that since we had gear that we could do that with." and this is what larry sayles and the wave did. 36 balls and a couple of bags of jerseys.

credit."
