gene might not be there

gene told me on wednesday he might not be at hoops on tomorrow morning. if that's true, we'll be down one. if pirate dave brings jim skywalker, we'll be ten plus one...unless someone else surprisingly disappears and then we might balance out. right now, there are a lot of "ifs" making it difficult to predict. but it usually pans out.

one thing i know for certain: gene might not be there, and i will probably be there. i guess that's two definites. see you in the morning! (probably.)

higher levels

as we begin the month-long trek into the holiday season full of much of the stuff we ate last week (and the weekend...and this week), it's important to keep our metabolic rates at higher levels than what they sink to when we are sitting around on our bums. in order to facilitate the upgraded standards, i have one word for you: hoops. nine out of ten doctors agree and recommend hoops to keep your family from shoving you back in the ocean by mistake. (that tenth doctor was one such shovee.)

we play tomorrow. come be all that you can be.

we are playing wednesday to get ready for tg. same bat time, same bat channel. come work off anything you have right now so you can fill it back up with turkey and stuff on thursday.

tomorrow is the last day of this week we'll be hoopin' it up. consensus indicates that not enough interest/bodies would be around for friday round ball. so, sleep in...or brave the noise that is knoxville traffic on black friday.

ladies first

the gym will not be available tomorrow in lieu of the ladies weekend conference, which will already be set up before tomorrow morning. we'll try again for monday morning.

there has been talk on the hoops email list (see right side links to add yourself) about thankgiving holiday play schedule. please chime in before wednesday next week so that i will know if there is enough interest. some have voiced for a later time on friday morning, around 7:00a. if you say you will come, i'm considering that a commitment. (i won't be happy to get up early on a vacation day to find only five people who didn't change their minds.)

have a good weekend!

month eleven

we're down to month eleven of two thousand seven. the floor is shiny. we are all ready. november hoops has begun. this is the perfect time to come and play hard to prepare for the extra food and candy season right around the corner. the turkey won't be so bad if you are already in shape to handle it. imagine no guilt to a third or fourth piece of punt-kin pie this time, even with half a tub of french vanilla cool whip smothering it. it'll be okay. you've done a lot of the work beforehand.
