not friday and not monday

unless you hear otherwise, tomorrow morning is out and so is monday.  there is still going to be a set up set up for a lunch on monday.  keep checking back, but we might not have a place at the wp on monday.

like there's no tomorrow...

i am getting ready for bed and posting this up later than i wanted.  i'll see you guys in the mañana for our midweek hoops set.  and prepare to give it up since we probably will not play on friday.

friday is go

rob e rob sez that we can do a bit of moving and get the gym cleared for us and back for them in a short amount of time.  so, we'll continue with plans to play.

if something changes, check the site for the latest.  if you don't see anything else, then assume the best.

pre-holiday games

wednesday is the before game set.  play the games while you still can move and are unaffected by turkey and cranberries.  and plan to play hard.  i don't know about you guys, but dragging myself up and down the court after good mealz is not quite as easy as it is when i'm unloaded.

i put an email to sonny inquiring about the jerseys and good balls.  i don't know if he'll know anything but at least the feelers are out.  a suggestion:  pack a light and dark in your car (or a reversable).  that way, we can be ready to have the team predestined (unless you come from cedar springs).

i assume you had a good turnout friday.  i'll plan to see you guys in the morning, if it doesn't snow.  ha!

the hand

just when i thought drew was a personal nemesis, he proved himself to be the nemesis of all equally putting his hand in front of everyone's shot or pass, blocking it all.  and as dennis started calling him, drew is now officially known as "the hand."  (there's a far side comic that i need post later.)

games are on tomorrow.  i will not be there but made the attempt to recruit mc (mike cho) as my substitute.  it will be good to let mc meet "the hand."  i fear to think that no one is safe with him around.

our basketball has just gotten a bit more complicated.

oh, you guys might want to discuss how many we will have next week, specifically on friday morning.  it's the annual turkey-work-off  edition of our sport.  but we'll need enough for that to really work.

lookin' for eight

past couple of times we've played, it's been seven.  i like the ol' four on three when i'm on three and have a good dose of red bull.  but four on four would be a lot more fun for all peeps.  so, if you didn't come last week, you might be that eighth (the chosen) one who will bring balance to the teams.

speaking of last week, i found that i have a nemisis in drew.  that boy slapped too many of my shots down like a perps pulled over by the lapd.  he's taken personally all those taunts i used to utter to his father.  i am definitely going to have to step up next time we face off.

see you in the morning.

still alive in the world

you are probably wondering, "will we play tomorrow morning? is round ball still being played around the world? has mock dropped the ball?"  well, i might have dropped the ball for an explicit wednesday announcement, but we did play.

games were on with ol' three versus four full court slam.  mono mike was back not missing much of a beat, and paired with pirate dave and my self (who was also donned in little pirate garb), we gave the rest their money's worth (i think).

oddly, the missing nigerian was, well, missing again as was drew.  we can't always be honored with the presence of aaron "please shove me" sherrill, but in his absence i had to resort to shoving bogie a few times.

round ball is indeed being played around the world, and more importantly, tomorrow morning.  be there or be square.

remember: no hoops on monday

we don't play tomorrow.  stay a home.  rest up for wednesday.  i expect there to be many eager players wanting to run the court on midweek's day.

get your friday fix

word on the street (from elaine) is that monday hoops are out for the senior luncheon. that means only two days next week. come friday and give it all you got cuz you get monday to let it heal.

remember also that we are going to be down two peeps. do the math: nine from today...wait, let make this a word problem. if twenty-one people are on the distribution list and two of those addresses are duplicates to the same person and we haven't seen three of those people in almost ever and two come very rarely and two come every so often and two are out of town and one has mono, how many people will we need to make at least a good eight to play some good hoops?

if you are having trouble getting the answer, find someone who is good with math and plays hoops and have him help you with the answer...and come on friday...because we'll probably need him.
