Sad City Hartford: Where Are They Now? Hartford Athletic Heroes

Sad City Hartford: Where Are They Now? Hartford Athletic Heroes


Sad City's Ron Francis 'Where Are They Now?' Entry


Athletics has long been a a unifying force for citizens to rally around. When a local team does good, individuals from all walks of life find common ground in cheering for the team.

As a Connecticut native living in North Carolina, I picked the entry that best tied my current and former home to highlight the newest addition to my daily reads list.
