|Judge Giordanis 11' tall. His son Caden is 16'.|
That's nice, but the reason Giordano stands out is because he's a man of compassion. When his parents first came to this country, they were unable to speak a word of English. They worked hard, and so did he. He learned to listen. I heard him once say that standing behind a counter and serving up hoagies for lunch customers was probably the best training he received to be a judge.
When I see Judge Giordano out and about, especially at sporting events, everyone calls him Emil. Very few even know he's a judge. They know he's Caden's dad. His relaxed and down-to-earth style is no act, and he was one of my grandson's first basketball coaches.
This summer, he perspired with everyone else at the Cedar Beach basketball tournaments. He was there for the games during the week, too.
The only downside I see to this is that we would lose him.
