    Just Met Jeff Hornacek's Wife and Daughter

    I was eating brunch like I always do in Charleston, got sat down next to a table with two women.

    One of them saw me in my cyclone gear and asked if I went there. I said yes and she said she was an alum and just kept talking. She introduced herself, "Stacy Hornacek" and I thought about Jeff but I wanted to be sure so I asked when she graduated and it started to add up. Then she said she lived in Phoenix and I was 95% sure at this point.

    Then when she said that he was a basketball player I knew... so I asked his name and I was right.

    His daughter plays volleyball at USC. They were just in town on vacation, and they were just both so nice and very beautiful.

    I was so star struck. I should've taken a picture.

    Well that's my story.


    My teams: (as of 6/15/14)
    Cleveland Browns: 4-12 - .250
    Cleveland Indians: 34-35 - .493
    Cleveland Cavs: 33-49 - .402
    Iowa State Cyclones (FB): 3-9 - .250
    Iowa State Cyclones (BB): 28-8 - .778

    Re: Just Met Jeff Hornacek's Wife and Daughter

    I'm more of a VB fan so I'm more impressed that the daughter plays for USC. They have won the championship 6 times in the last 15 years.

    April Ross is an alum, for those of you who watched the Olympics.

    I'm sure 2015 can get Michael Bay to turn this into a summer blockbuster.

    If only we knew what city 2015 was in this summer. It's always such a mystery.

    Re: Just Met Jeff Hornacek's Wife and Daughter

    Great story! I've heard that the Hornaceks are all very nice. Great to hear of their daughter's success. I did a quick search for what I could find about her play at USC and came across this bio: http://www.usctrojans.com/sports/w-s...ek_abby00.html, looks like her brother played VB for the Trojans as well.

    Hornacek may have the best backcourt in the NBA as of two days ago.

    They're loaded. Thomas (who might be the 1st or 2nd most underrated PG in the NBA), Dragic, and Bledsoe. They're gonna be good.

    The backcourt with him and Stockton wasn't too shabby either

    Re: Just Met Jeff Hornacek's Wife and Daughter

    To add a similar story about meeting a family member but not the player. Wife wanted to go to garage sales in waukee this spring. She was looking for clothes for our daughter and I was looking for stuff I didn't need. Anyways we split for a second and I ended up at a place with random things. The lady saw my sweat shirt and ISU hat and asked me about being a fan. She said her son played there many years back. Her son was Hurl Beechum. She told me stories of going out to eat with Fred and Hurl before games then driving them to the games and such. She talked about a bball she had signed by all the seniors and how a lawyer in KC offered her 2k for it but she turned it down. It was fun listening to the stories and realizing that these guys we grew up watching and idolizing are just regular sons to these people.

    It's probably why he was star-struck. ;)

    True story, I used to pick Hornacek and Malone with Utah in NBA Jam because Hornacek was always unconscious from three in that game.
