last may day

i know what you're thinking. you're thinking, "how can it be the end
of may and i've already almost played a half a year's worth of hoops?"
or maybe you're thinking, "it's friday already and it feels like
thursday." or perhaps, "how much gas is left in my lawn mower?"

i don't know if i have answers to any of those questions, but i can
give you this answer: "42." (if you know what the question is, that
makes all difference in the universe.) and i can also tell you that
we indeed are ending this month with a game of basketball. come for

monday match

monday hoops was a good match of the crew we had. thanks, bobby, for
showing up and picking up the slack for our numbers. we battled long
and hard for our exercise.

i look forward to the morrow's morn, when we all will gather yet again
for more hoopage. same time at ye olde gym. come and let yourself be
counted among the players.

let your voice be heard

i know some have sent notes already, but i wanted to send another ping out for feedback. if you are planning on coming monday, let me hear from you by sunday morning. after that, i'll consider silence as negative. i'll send a final note out on sunday morning letting the crew know if there will be enough to play.

long weekend

in preparation for the long weekend, it only makes sense to come play
some basketball. let me give you some reasons:

1. you'll be eating lots of grill out. lose the pounds ahead of time
so you break even.
2. it's so totally fun that you know you can't miss it.
3. we need ten guys.
4. fridays are always good days since a weekend is close.
5. you might get to see dennis (will he be there? come and see)
6. we don't play on saturday.
7. three words: waffle house after

if those reasons don't motivate, we'll try hypnosis for subconscious triggering.

speaking of a long weekend, who's gonna show for memorial day monday
hoops? i think getting a good count ahead of time will let me know if
i get to sleep in or not.

yes, tomorrow

sorry for the delay in getting back to notices, but it was a rough
monday. i'm planning on being there tomorrow morning. if i can't
play, i'll at least open the gym.

see you all in the morning!

thank your mom

make sure you send your mom a text message and let her know that you are grateful for having you so you could play some basketball. if it weren't for her, you wouldn't be enjoying all the fun we all have.

shields up

communications officer: "incoming transmission, sir."
captain: "open channel. this is the captain of the starship
basketball. what are you doing this sector?"

[captain stands up from his captain's chair.]

aliens: "we have come to challenge you to a game of the round ball."
captain: "you know the rules to our games?"
aliens: "we have scanned your espn database and found all we need to know."
captain: "we have this little place on the surface of the planet
below. we'll send you the coordinates."

[captain head gestures to communications officer to transmit the numbers.]

aliens: "we have received your location coordinates. we will meet
you for the encounter."
captain: "agreed. we'll beam down at oh-five-hundred-fifty hours.
oh, and make sure you bring it!"
aliens: "oh, we will."
captain: "close channel."

[captain sits back down in the center seat and turns to his first officer...]

captain: "we'll see if they show."

no flashbacks

wednesday is a new day. don't let the unpleasant memories from monday
keep you down. no pain will stop us from all meeting around the
circle. even charlie won't ambush. remember who's got your back out
there. grab your gear and be there. the flashbacks can make you feel
timid, but that's not how we've trained. ante up and kick in like
