      My claim to fame with respect to Andrew Bogut was that I owned andrewbogut.com for a time, from the time that Majerus offered him which was just after his U19 team (Emus) had a good run in the FIBA World Cup competition with Bogut starring.   His blue collar background and work ethic really appealed to me so I set up a low-tech fan site with links to his highlights and games.   I got to know his grandmother very well.  She was the sweetest lady and Andrew’s biggest fan.  She’d email me after games and shared some memorabilia with me.  Unfortunately I lost touch with her a couple years after he went pro.    I think Andrew bought them and his parents a huge new house; his grandparents had been living in a rural area northwest of Melbourne, his parents in Melbourne.

        That is an incredible story. My friend and I would sit with Ken Bone’s mother when she would come to games at Portland State. I am certain that Bogut’s grandmother was sweet. However, Mrs. Bone was the sweetest.

          Reminds me of the saying of the prophet Rulon T. Jeffs, “Keep sweet.”
