Milwaukee March Madness: 1977

Scratch Hit Sports: Marquette Golden Eagles Win The NCAA Championship

That was some run by the Marquette Warriors in 1977.

Historian John Gurda looks back.

The photographer captured in Gurda’s piece is Don Parsons. I inquired on another FB page if anyone knew who it was (I didn’t). But Parsons, an old WTMJ colleague, admitted he was the guy.

“That’s me with my CP-16A, it was chaos covering that event. During this time I had beer splashed on me and was goosed by a woman while doing a stand up. Good times.”
