1 or 3

if the same blokes who showed up monday come again tomorrow, we only
need one more or three more.

be a bloke. come tomorrow. play basketball.

we are definitely playing basketball tomorrow morning, despite what
happened at the end of last week. i couldn't believe it turned out
that way. we'll be throwing the round ball around again. i just
hope it doesn't turn into another friday like that.

great expectations

it's what everyone expects, i expect. i'm talking about the right
number for hoops. we've been having the right number lately, and it's
been great. i'm not sure if i should let my expectations be so high
for tomorrow, but maybe it's fine to take that chance.

i leave you with my favorite quote from the movie "hot shots: part deux":

Rabinowitz: What are you reading?
Topper: Great Expectations.
Rabinowitz: Is it any good?
Topper: It's not what I'd hoped for.

five words for you

i've got five words for you all: show up on time!

wait, that's not five. do i need to tell you that we're playing at
the same time tomorrow as we did on monday? no, probably not.

how about these five words: we need eight to ten guys!

hmm, still not the right number, even though it's true. and with less
than ten we could play odd numbers all at once like we have in the
past. we have a good work out and mostly a good time. pack in your
red bull and show up for some active games.

five words for you: maybe we'll play four games again like we did on monday.

aw, shucks.

the early bryce gets the worm

bryce has been on the ball (har, har) getting to hoops as soon as the doors are unlocked. he's beaten dennis (who's been a little missing), trent, and even neal. in fact, he pulled in the parking lot one morning ahead of me. he gets there so he can warm up. and you see how well he plays. coming early is a good thing. bryce will tell you himself how much it means to him. so, to you, bryce, a big ol' bucket of worms.

i'll see you guys there tomorrow.

round losers

we'll divide up into balanced teams tomorrow and play the game. suit up in your favorite jersey (just not all white/light colors this time) and down a cup of coffee to fuel your muscles. losers buy the donuts!

rainy days and mondays

these two things get karen carpenter down, but even if we have both
tomorrow morning we'll still be playing hoops.

drag your sorry bodies out of bed for a morning of roundball challenge.

sunrise hoops

it time for baskets, bonnets, and sunrise services. so, we'll have our own sunrise event. sunrise hoops doesn't mean you show up when the sun rises but you are done to see the sun rise.

check your almanacs and plan accordingly. i'll see you all there. (bogie, no bonnets.)

we'll be playing some hoops on wednesday morning. plan on it. strap
those chains to your tires, reattach the snow plow to the front of
your truck, and throw your vehicle into four-wheel drive. get there
early to get a good spot around the circle. we won't be stopped by
the weather. we will prevail.

come prevail at ten till six tomorrow morning.

hot and cold

as you are well aware if you have lived in this state for more than
two years, one day is hot, one day is cold. you can have a heat wave
and snow in the same week. this week seems to be our week for crazy
weather. no matter. we'll play hoops despite the elements. and i'm
not talking about the periodic table or chemistry elements. it's the
crazy weather elements.

keep your vows. come out and play some hoops all week.

monday is tear down/set up monday. come early to help tear down.
stay to help set back up. we've got this down to a science any more.

i don't know how they play this sport in scotland, but here in knox of
ville we never wear kilts to morning hoops. this has never been
mentioned before and as it has been demonstrated needs no mention.
we've never had kilt hoops, and we never will.

gird your shorts and show up tomorrow for a kilt-free hoops experience
(just all the rest). they may take your kilt, but they will never
take your freedom.
