Memorial Coliseum's Champion Gil Frey

The Oregonian did a piece a couple of days back on local veteran Gil Frey, who has waged a virtual one-man campaign to save the Portland Memorial Coliseum. He has finally gotten some help as of late, but as far back as 2002 when there was a larger effort by the local veterans to keep the M.C. from being turned into the "Veterans Home Depot ", Gil has been the man.

The article was good, maybe a bit condescending towards the Glass Palace, but it was good to see Gil get the credit that he deserves. I hope that I have his energy when I am his age.
