Fun(?) Fact about San Diego's Rob Jones

Post by thepuck on Mon Mar 17, 2008 11:31 am

I was doing some research for my bracket and stumbled upon this little factoid courtesy of Yahoo sports and Rivals.com. Directly copied and pasted from the website:

"One of San Diego's starting forwards is freshman Rob Jones; his grandfather was Jim Jones, of the infamous Guyana mass suicide"

here's the link (its about a quarter way down on "the buzz"):

Yeah... there have been some really good articles written about it. There was a nice one in Sports Illustrated this fall, and there was also a spot about it on ESPN Outside the Lines in October or so.

OK... I wasn't going to take the time to post links, but now I will:
