not enough for wednesday

it's over the 24 hour mark since my query and my response wasn't very strong for attendance tomorrow.  how about we sleep in tomorrow and regroup on friday?

besides, the other key holders aren't going be there tomorrow morning to open in the event that i get called in the middle of the night for work.  there will be coverage on friday.

i'll see you all bright and early on friday!

another count

today's number of seven left a little us feeling a little unbalanced.  two or the normals were out and two more of the regs said they won't be there on wednesday.  and with me on call this week, my normal open the gym backups are among those missing.

which brings me to need to get a show of replies of those who plan to show on wednesday.  so, twenty-four hours from now, i'll send out/post the verdict.  you have that long to respond.  synchronize your watches.

...and in basketball this week, good team match ups on wednesday.  a four-on-four face-off in furious frenzies as a lot of juggling of the round ball occurred.  fast breaks, long passes, interceptions, back and forth all morning.  nothing works off last night's spicy noodles like games such as this.  it's amazing we are still able to go to work afterwards.

tomorrow should prove to be the ending to an amazing week.  pitting another four against four for all the meatballs in the spaghetti, all the marsh mellows in the lucky charms.  which team will emerge champion and who will walk away the goat.  that's what this is all about.  you can't get this anywhere else, people.  anywhere, except march madness.

see you then (555)!

weekly highlights (so far)

it was a rousing day of hoops on monday.  we had a good number of eight (eight is enough for full court) and played our little muscles out.  even though my team lost all three games, it was a still some good exercise.  the fighting was long, the plays spectacular in a harlem globetrotter kind of way, and water from the drinking fountain was very appreciated after all was said and done.

hoping for another eight on wednesday to keep the execise program alive and my muscles dead.  by the way, in an effort of planning ahead, can someone consider bringing a hammer on friday to silence trent's phone so he can focus on the very important games of basketball.

see you all at 5:55a to keep living the dream!

pirate dave's day

ahoy, mates!  it's talk like a pirate day tomorrow.  grab your eye patch and come walk the full-court plank.

we had seven on wednesday with two confirmed outs for tomorrow.  we have a good crew coming tomorrow?

i'll be one-eyed seeing you then.

even more exercise

if you missed out on monday, we played some hoopsercise.  good workout.

we play tomorrow morning too.  i am usually there by 5:45a.  so, if you wanted to warm up your shots, come inside.

btw, friday is national talk-like-a-pirate day, which of course, is pirate dave's favorite day.  be prepared!

what better way to get excercise than to involve yourself in an active game of hoops on monday morning. come lose those annoying pounds by playing full court games. bring the epic music in your head to energize your flabby self.

see you!

i remember

i remember hoops way back in day,
 when we had enough guys on full court to play.

it was so much fun; i loved the recreation.
 the aerobic exercise provided such an elation.

when the alarm would sound disrupting my sleep,
 it was worth the effort to jump to my feet.

i'd throw on my shorts and rush to the gym,
 down a red bull and get some practice shots in.

but there's only one echo when the hands split the face,
 the clock shows six and and there's still not a trace.

i long for those days again when all the guys would come,
 and i wonder if i should keep the plan or just stay home....

hmm...the real question is how many are going to show up tomorrow.

we do need to get there a little early and tear down and we'll need to set up again.  (monthly senior luncheon time again.)

new tools

thanks to bill, we now have four basketballs to warm up with in addition to the two "official" game balls we've been using.  we tried them out on wednesday and found which ones we seemed to like.  personally, i'm partial to the cantaloupe.

we play tomorrow morning, 5:55a, same bat time, same bat channel.

wake your body up

hope the sleep-in monday was a relaxing time for you.  set your body and alarm clocks for hoops on wednesday.  we're back.
