2012 MO Sports Hall of Fame Induction

This past Sunday, John, my dad, Greg and I attended the 2012 Missouri Sport Hall of Fame 2012 Induction ceremony at the University Plaza Convention Center. We have gone in years past but this year was particularly special because we got to meet St. Louis Cardinals Jim Edmonds. The list of inductees was very impressive and even though I am not a huge sports buff I recognized a few of the names on the list. In college, I nannied for an awesome family who was very close friends to Jon Sundvold (an 2012 inductee), so I also babysat his kids a few times. It was cool to get to see them at the banquet supporting him as well as see Jon be inducted. He had quite the impressive basketball career with Mizzou, Seattle, San Antonio and with Miami.
We were able to get a few players to sign their cards for Hamlet’s baby book too.
Terrible pictures but at least we have one
