Florence Sloane rooted for ODU football before you did

It appears the woman who was so active in the Arts community in Norfolk was also an adamant supporter of recreational facilities. Our fine Mrs. Sloane sat on the committee that supported the, “capacious concrete stadium and playground,” known as Foreman Field.  Of course at the time ODU wasn’t ODU, but rather William and Mary … I think we can look past that though.

The point of all of this being that Florence had Monarch pride before you did. Her love of ODU was so great that she called it the College of William and Mary and because of that she remains better than most of us. 

So the next time you are cooking sausages, shotgunning cheap booze and cheering on the local football team remember that one classy lady assisted bringing you that brick oyster of happiness.
