Our Third Dinner Event was Dynamite!
Ghost, goblins, witches and pumpkins galore adorned the recent San Jose State Quarterback Cub meeting at Dave and Buster's on Thursday, October 30th. The Spartan faithful gathered to share spirits and spirits while getting all treats in the form of mini pizzas, pretzel bites and Swedish meatballs to start off the event. That was followed by a multi course buffet which led up to the program portion of the dinner. Defensive coordinator Greg Robinson discussed the recent Navy game and previewed our upcoming Mountain West contest again Colorado State on November 1st. He was joined by Spartan favorite Travis Riciti who discussed his role on the team, his preparation for each game, his coursework at the university and his future plans.
The evening's featured guest was Dan Clark - Nitro of American Gladiator fame. He discussed his playing days at SJSU and his acting career as one of TV's first reality stars. He told the assembled that his two biggest audiences came at the annual SJSU-Stanford game where he played before over 75,000 fans and his stint at Madison Square Garden where he was greeted by 17,500 screaming American Gladiator fans. He told of how his TV career opened doors for him, even being invited to an event in Southern California that featured presidents Reagan, Carter and Bush senior. He also told of his almost fanatic fitness routine and how despite that routine, how stunned he was to recently have a heart attack at the ripe old age of 49. It was that experience that inspired him to set up a national obstacle course company that funds his foundation which raises funds for autism research. He also talked about his long time affinity and devotion to San Jose State and how his recent medical problems prompted him to attend our QBC dinner.
