While on vacation in Thailand on December 31, 2015, my mind was certainly on what was about to happen in the Orange Bowl half a world away. In Chiang Mai, there is a Tiger preservation center called Tiger Kingdom, so it seemed appropriate to pay a visit. The tigers were amazing though the workers there were somewhat baffled by my Tiger rag. Between my determination to visit the tigers and to get up at 4 a.m. to listen to streaming radio of the Orange Bowl, I am pretty sure my friends thought I was crazy. But I’m also sure that my father David Goldsmith (Class of ’49; 1928-1989), who could never get through the Alma Mater without tearing up, was smiling down!
