So, today, I had lunch with a former great Pirate player…Kevin Ingram. He met me for lunch in a great restaurant in Jenkintown, PA, for those of you who might be around the area…a place called the Kitchen Bar.
For those of you who do not know who Kevin is, he was the starting quarterback for Ed Emory’s famed 1983 squad. He transferred from Villanova University after the they disbanded the team.
Now, I can’t tell you everything we talked about because that would ruin the Pirate Time Machine feature that I am working on, but I will say that he is such a great guy. He is a contractor these days so if you live in Philly-area and need some home improvements or construction done, consider giving him a call. And, he loves the Pirates…has kept up with them and will likely be another of those greats that you see more and more involved going forward.
Here are the answers he gave me to a few questions I asked him. Sorry…can’t share the questions – you will have to read the Magazine this year to figure that out.
1. answer: “without a doubt, that would be the Florida State game.’
2. answer: “all together…there were 12.”
3. answer: “so, I canceled a trip there and visited ECU.”
4. answer: “I was so happy we beat them three-straight times.”
5. answer: “Yeah…on the street.”
Just a few of the answers in a pretty cool discussion with the QB who made the ’83 Pirates go.
Wanted to share!
Please share any Ingram or 1983 memories you care to share.
