Allen Iverson introduced an urban look into professional basketball though that hadn’t been the case in Georgetown where John Thompson would never have allowed it. Customer said his mother was super focused on her hatred of the president. Customer said she hadn’t gone on vacation this summer but did quit her job and got her driver’s permit. Customers were members of local highschool chorus taking break from nearby fundraising campaign. Customer was coach of his daughter’s soccer team (what position did she play?) Center fullback.
