"There wasn't time to plan a ticker-tape parade, the traditional New York toast to heros, but Webb and his 26 teammates, who were brought to the meet by Raczko to let them share in the big day, were treated to a post-meet dinner at Coogan's Restaurant, the favorite stopping place for coaches, officials, and others who have spent a long day at the Armory.
Co-owner Peter Walsh, who was trackside during Webb's race, gave caps and other mementos to all of the South Lakes kids, introduced Webb to other diners and arranged a lengthy photo session before the team hopped on the bus for the long ride home to Virginia. A good time was had by all."
Is this considered illegal? Free accessories and whatnot? Being treated to a dinner? I sense something fishy here.
