The temptation to take a camera to the event marking the opening of the Sports Museum of America  was just too great. The event was held on Tuesday between our publications’ offices and the Wall Street bull. The institution, just across Broadway,  is the result of a nearly seven-year effort of CEO Philip Schwalb, who once worked with two accounting software VARs, and whose former boss, Doug Weintraub of Socius (when reselling operation was part of Centerprise Information Solutions), based in Cleveland, not surprisingly sold Dynamics GP as the accounting package for the new Wall Street area institution, which is expected to draw 1 million visitors a year.

The event was a once-in-a-lifetime gathering of sports figures, including the Giants Eli Manning, basketball legend Bob Cousy, announcer Bud Collins and tennis veterans, Billie Jean King, Patrick McEnroe and Martina Navratilova.
