Final 4 feature on Joe D.

Michigan State will be playing against Butler on Saturday in the NCAA’s Final Four. During the CBS broadcast of the pre-game show, which airs from 4-6 pm, there will be a feature on three former Michigan State alumni including Bills Hall of Famer Joe DeLamielleure between 4:15 and 4:45. 

Called ‘Ride of a Lifetime’ the feature will chronicle the bike trek of Joe D., the former head of the secret service Eljay Bowron and John Shinsky from East Lansing, Michigan to Matamoros, Mexico. 

For those that don’t remember, last year the three former Spartan teammates went on an 18-day bike ride last spring to raise the final money needed to open an orphanage in Matamoros, Mexico.  Shinsky, who himself was an orphan, always wanted to give back.  With the help of the Michigan State community he finally realized his goal.  The feature is narrated by Dick Enberg.

 Here’s our story on their amazing effort from last year.
