friday off

don't forget to unset your clocks for tomorrow morning so that you can sleep in.  we're taking it off so that the floor can be redone.  when we come back on monday, we'll have a shiny new floor.  bring your cameras and see you then!

last day this week

tomorrow is the final day we'll get to play this week.  thursday and friday are reserved for floor work.  we'll have a new court come monday.  come commemorate the last time we'll get to play on the floor we have.  then you can make your own comparisons next week.

come ready to play for two days.

ten is great, i feel old

having a full five-on-five wednesday morning makes a big difference in how that game is played.  as much as i appreciate the exercise of four-on-four full court, the dynamics of ten guys facing off has a lot more excitement.

i have to admit that after we played our games on wednesday morning, i believe i am beginning to feel as old as bill after i sit down at my desk for work.  body aching, staying tired longer, wishing for a nap....  truly, i don't know how he does it.  but if he can pull it together, then certainly i can too, right?  thanks, bill, for setting the pace for keeping us all going, no matter how run down our bodies get.  you're the inspiration!

see you in the morning!

thanks for the eight

i thank you guys who were able to make the numbers full court-able.  i needed a good run after this past weekend.  and i'm still up for some high activity tomorrow.  bring your best basketball shoes.

come early.  the sooner we start, the more games we can play.

warm your engines

the only way to reclaim your missing summer/fall temps is to come play tomorrow morning. we do well with eight. we'd do better with ten.

(some of you need to bring notes from your wives for last week's absences. you know who you are.)

see you chosen ten tomorrow!

full ten friday?

will there be a full ten players tomorrow morning? we've not played the past two fridays, so it would on fair to fridays to play this friday.

as usual, i'll be there tomorrow morning early. come and play!

more than monday (we hope)

ok, you ladies who went on the men's retreat and played volleyball all night, time to get your bods up for some basketball.  the five (then four) of us on monday had a good time playing some street two-on-two, but we are looking for some real men who want to play a real sport.  if you choose to leave your skirts at home, you can join us tomorrow morning bright and early.  the four of us will be waiting for you.

no friday hoops again

this time, the men's retreat is pulling a big chunk of the regulars out of the mix.  so, we'll plan to reconvene on monday for the standard fun.

i heard there was a plan for some extended play hoops at the men's retreat, though.  if you are going, be there for that.  and it probably won't be as early as we normally play.

promises for wednesday

i've heard some verbal promises for playing some wednesday hoops.  base on that, i expect for an easy ten.  but as i know the nature of west park hoops, we'll never know until we are ready to play.  nevertheless, i'll be there to play hard.  see you guys in the morning.

NO hoops tomorrow (oct 2)

sorry, guys.  as soon as i sent the other message, the notice popped into my inbox letting me know the gym is unavailable tomorrow, oct 2.  bring your gazelle-selves on monday, oct 5.

be the gazelle

having a matched five-on-five group yesterday makes the whole hoops experience a wonderful thing.  i'm hoping for the same number tomorrow to make the friday just as fun as the wednesday.

bring your gazelle-like skillz to the court.
