Posted on March 12, 2015 |
By Gregory Dennis



Some people do crazy things in midlife. They get divorced from a person they love, or they change careers or move across the country for no apparent reason.

But almost no one can say their midlife crisis involved creating a professional basketball team. A team that brightened the days of a rabid coterie of cowbell-clanging fans amid the winter gloom — and gave Vermont its first professional sports championships.
