March Madness certainly has been a family affair for the Wilson's every year.  The Wilson family has attended a collective 70 Final Fours.  Frank has attended thirty-seven Final Fours and his wife Cath (20), daughter Meredith (9), son-in-law Matt (4) and grandson Lincoln (1) have combined for thirty-four Final Fours of their own.  Frank's family still holds the Hoop Historians all-time single season travel record, as in 2005 the threesome embarked on a 3-1/2 week, six thousand mile campaign which saw them go to first round games in Nashville, the regional final in Chicago, the Final Four in Saint Louis, visit with relatives in Tennessee and attend a wedding in Atlanta.  Wilson is the co-chairperson of the Hoop Historians Social & Entertainment Committee.  Frank attended the MLB All-Star Games in 1953 and 2010; the Kentucky Derby in 1967; the NBA Finals in 1970 and the Summer Olympics in 1984.
