Broadway Boys: December 2011: The Athens U Men's Basketball Team

Mr. December 2011
The Athens University Men's Basketball Team

WHY THEY ARE MR. BROADWAY: It's hard enough to have a 30 year in a row losing streak, isn't it?  But to have a cheerleading squad that won't put out seems like cruel and unusual punishment.  Then, on top of it all, they have to flaunt it in front of a sports fan's toughest audience 8 times a week on BROADWAY.  Five of the eight guys on the squad are making their Broadway debut, which alone is reason to celebrate.  Let's celebrate another new musical opening - the last of 2011 - Lysistrata Jones, starring The Athens University Men's Basketball Team.  GO SPARTANS!
