last chance

this is your last chance to play some basketball in 2007. if you don't make it tomorrow, you'll have to wait till next year to play. (fortunately, that's just wednesday, so it'll be a short wait.)

come redeem yourself if you've played like a goober the rest of this year. i know i will.

pre-weekend excitement

before all your fun begins this weekend, kick it off with a rousing game off basketball. nothing beats a 5:30a wake up time, the brisk cool gym, and a can of red bull to get you going. ok, so that's how my morning goes. it could be yours. we play tomorrow.

interested parties

well, it looks like there are enough interested people in playing this next week. next question was the time. i think we should leave the time the same for those who aren't checking this site or are on this email list.

so, monday morning, 6:00a. we'll play until we get tired. and we'll play wednesday the same.

hoops for the holidays?

the initial request for hands of those who would be around to play on christmas eve (monday) and the day after christmas (wednesday) looked a little low. so, i need to get a count from those reading this email or visiting the web page if you are going to make it either day. please let me know one way or the other so i can get a good count.

i'll post on sunday afternoon if we are playing monday morning based on the responses i get between now and then.

note: if you are not on the email list and reading this on the website, follow the link on the right under "pages" called mailing list to sign yourself up. it's a self-managed list. you will not be spammed. i'm a stickler about those things.

beating the monday morning cold

looks like monday morning will be a cold one. don't let that prevent you from early morning hoops. here are some tips to stay warm:

  • wear a jacket (or sweats). dressing in more than shorts to walk outside will help keep you warm.

  • use the heater in your car. unless you live within two minutes from the church like i do, your car should be warm while driving to hoops (if you turn the heater on, that is).

  • drink a warm beverage pre-game. be it some hot coffee or a slightly heated red bull, both are bold moves but will help warm your insides.

  • come and play. that will most certainly warm you up. like c&c music factory, we're gonna make you sweat.

if you employ these ideas, being warm will not be hard. tip-off at 6:00am!

holiday snacks and munchies are already flooding my normal avenues of venture. it is important during these times to keep the exercise up so that we keep the need for massive new years resolutions down.

to quote kevin james in his "sweat the small stuff" stand-up routine:
"my fitness goals are just different than most people. some people want to lose enough weight to fit in to a swimsuit. i just want to lose enough weight so that my tummy doesn't jiggle when i brush my teeth. after that, it's just maintenance from there on out."

wednesday is maintenance. come maintain.

early muscle

it's time again. the day of hoops is upon us. tomorrow, we play round ball with all of our might.

but before we do, we need several who can show up early and help move a few items out the way so that we can play. and we'll need to set back up after the last game. more people, less time. that's the axiom we live and play by.

i can't do it alone.
