no hoops this friday or next

this message from elaine:

The gym will not be available for the next 2 Friday mornings for basketball. I am sorry. We don't have enough maintenance/setup staff right now so we're having to make some temporary adjustments.

crazy wednesday

we had our midweek three-on-three spectacular this morning.  full court.  that's why it was crazy.  well, that, and some of our playing.  good thing we can laugh at ourselves...or at least each other.

i think don's suggestion to bring cash on friday is a good one.  if you come, bring a five spot for the good idea.

that said, i'll probably be working late night thursday/early friday morning.  if i am, i won't make the games, but i'll find a way to get the money to the right person for my contribution.  this also means john will need to plan to open the shop.  i hope to make it, but if things go like i found out this morning, i won't.

feel the draft

as it stands right now, we'll need to draft at least one more person for tomorrow if we are to have eight.  mike is only mondays right now, and with jeff gone we'll be down to seven.

is there anyone we can reactivate from our past to make the numbers?  if you can bring a pal, it would make it much more fun.  tell them it's free.  that might just be the incentive they need.

i think we were all hatin' our own game at some point this morning.  i know i was, missing all the lay ups and easy shots.

what i hated worse was the four on three match up we had since prime number seven was our total count.  it sure would be nice to have evens on friday, hint, hint.

i am going to do my best to be there despite feeling like i'm coming down with my first cold of the season.  lotsa vitamin c and zinc are on my menu for the next couple of days, including some rest.

peace out!

looking forward

i'm so looking forward to play some hoops in the morning.  i think it will be awesome!  especially if we have ten players.

remember:  don't hate the player, hate the game.  (don't be a playah hatah!)

a good friday

we had a perfect ten for the count today.  and it seems that we all brought our running shoes and left our game in our least for the first half of the first game.  (i felt like my shots were so upwards.)

we all are bringing it back on monday.  if you can't bring it then, send it with someone else.

bring game

it's bring yo game friday!  bringing a friend would help us have enough playas, but if you can bring yo game then we can definitely guarantee some matches that will be real.

same bat time, same bat channel!

seven is still lucky (i guess)

we had another seven people today playing full court. it was fun. my feet were still stuck to the ground. dennis even asked if the floor had been cleaned recently, so i know it's not just me.

we'll be bringing our game on monday. if you haven't shown up in a while, you can still come. seven is not too bad, but ten is better.

we're back!

seven us made an apparence this morning for some full court hoops. i'm glad to be back. i did feel like my shoes were glued to the floor too much this morning. that's what happens when you miss a week of much needed aerobic exercise.

we're playing wednesday for sure. be there!

no hoops on monday either!

per elaine, we are on hold again.
The gym will not be available for you all until Wednesday, 8/9. Sorry you're not getting to enjoy your games much these days. Children's Ministry has the gym sewn up quite a bit these days.

no hoops for friday!

well, elaine has said things were still not good for hoops tomorrow morning, august 4.

i guess we'll try on monday.
