Harrold's homecoming

It’s been a good road trip for Peter Harrold, whose parents were able to make a 2 1/2-hour drive to watch him play in Detroit and, tonight, will drive two hours to see him play in Columbus. Harrold is from Kirtland Hills, Ohio, which is in the northeast part of the state. Kirtland Hills is, essentially, across the lake from Detroit and Toronto, and also not too far from Buffalo. So which team did Harrold cheer for, growing up?

Chicago. Chicago?

“I think, when I was younger, I just liked the way their uniforms looked,” Harrold said.

I think we all had that moment at some time in childhood, right?

Also, tomorrow Harrold will go to Boston, where he spent four years at Boston College.
