    What ever happened to Ed?

    Curious about the former halftime host at MBB games. He would always walk out onto the court in the same outfit, with that old-school corded microphone and say "HEY EVERBODY!" and the entire crowd would respond "HEY ED!"

    Remember that dude? IIRC he was still around when I was in school in the early 2000's and I know he had been around since I was a kid and Johnny was coaching. We should bring him back to Michigan game as well and let him on the mic (assuming he's still alive).

    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    that was always a great halftime! If you shot 5 for 5, you could win a car from 'Benson Motors'! Crowd loved that halftime show!

    Ed Gagnier was at one time the gymnastics coach at ISU. He used to be out next door neighbor when I was growing up. I'm sure he's retired.

    Re: What ever happened to Ed?

    Wow, I was really young and vaguely remember that. What did he actually do during halftime? I remember a mini remote controlled blimp flying around too. What was all that?

    According to wikipedia, he studied at U of Michigan before coaching here.

    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    Blimp was cool.

    Ed must have golfed Veenker quite a bit at one time. He has a number of hole in ones.

    He is still a member and plays nearly everyday when the weather is good.

    According to this Daily article in '97, one person did.

    More than just a helpful halftime host - Iowa State Daily: Home

    Did some researching. Sounds like he and his wife still live in Ames, so I'm sure he still attends events, barring health issues. It would be nice if the University did some follow-up with him. After all, he was a part of the good ol' days.
