Opinion: ‘Hick in the ‘Hood’ thanks community for ‘gem of a film’

I want to thank Mark Mooney Jr. and so, so many others for making the inspiring documentary film “The Green Mountain Upset” and bringing it to Middlebury.
As a member of the 1983 Middlebury Union High School state championship basketball team (“the biggest upset in Vermont history” — tell that to Ethan Allen) I am forever grateful not only for this gem of a film which so beautifully documents that season and the Middlebury spirit, but I am grateful also for the event that brought my beloved teammates and the entire community together.
Thank you, Doug Anderson and the gang at the Town Hall Theater. Thank you, Andy and Angelo and the Addy Indy. Thank you, Reunion Committee. Thank you Mark “Moondog” Mooney. Thank you, Addison County.
What a special community.
