drag it out tomorrow

just like you had to drag those christmas decorations out of the attic (and in my case the tree as well), it's time to drag your turkey-laden bodies back out to the court tomorrow morning to undo last thursday...and friday...and probably saturday too.  can't wait to run again.

i'll be there as usual with an open gym kinda early for those who wish to do some warming up.  how early you ask?  just ask bryce.  he usually beats you all in when he comes.  see ya!

the hoops marathon continues

tomorrow is the final day of the three-day stretch.  and speaking of stretching, my muscles are in great need of some serious attention after today's games.  visa (aka trent) was right that we'll be napping for two days on the sofa, all through thankgiving.  but those two days of rest are my incentive to push through one more day of hoops.

and it seems everyone has been having fun with the teams matched up they way they have been.  there have been some good games played.

set your alarms for tomorrow, get some rest tonight,  take some ibuprofin, and prepare for the final day of action packed mornings.  then you can enjoy macy's t-giving day parade.

tuesday special

the word on the street is that we have enough playahz for tuesday hoops!  since our bodies are probably in a routine of getting a day of rest in between sessions, this should be quite the shock to the system.  so you'll probably need to have a chat with your body to let it know that tomorrow takes the place of black friday when your wives will be dragging you out to all the crowded stores to get the best deals in the world.  since i am single, i'll probably get up late and mosey into the kitchen and cook up some bacon, eggs, and pancakes while i sit on the sofa to watch some tivo.  but i digress.

come tomorrow for tuesday power hoops!  special tuesday games start at 5:55a.

too comfortable

don't get too comfortable expecting muffins all the time playing basketball.  gene, aka "the muffin man," brought up some post-hoops goodies this past wednesday to celebrate pirate dave's birthday.  and we had the numbers for full teams.  pirate dave shed a lonely tear when he realized matched teams AND muffins.

"i never thought we'd have enough guys on my birthday.  and the muffins are just icing on the cake!" said pirate dave, emotionally moved.  "it was the best birthday evar!  and you guys are the best evar!"

thanks for the muffins, gene, and for all the guys that came out to make this past wednesday special for pirate dave.

of course, we'll be playing the same ol' tomorrow morning.  same time and stuff.  no muffins, but guaranteed fun.

oh, and mark it down:  we'll be playing monday and wednesday next week, but not friday.  there will be too many people gone to attempt that day.  you'll have to find other ways to get rid of your turkey pounds.

birthday basketball

pirate dave's birthday is tomorrow.  come celebrate his thirty-eighth trip around the big ball o' gas and fire with an exciting game of basketball.  it's almost an occasion for cake and ice cream, but i'm sure we won't have any of that there.  in fact, in lieu of presents, your presence would be present enough for him, i'm sure.  having matched numbers for teams is a gift for which he might shed a tear.

come see pirate dave cry!  be a part of it!

note:  the "big ball o' gas and fire" is the sun.  if you thought i was referring to pirate dave, you were mistaken.

i'll be there.  ready for the other nine.

when trent comes, he'll be on our team

wednesday's 3-on-4 was quiet the workout, from one of the three's perspective.  it was fun while i had oxygen.  and things might have gone differently...when trent shows up.  he'll be on our team.

trent, where are you?

14 just 7 ago

we had 14 people show up last week.  that's quite a crew.  of course, there were only 5 on friday.  we had 9 on monday.  hmm, 9 + 5 = 14.  you can't ignore that math.

how many tomorrow?  hopefully, enough.  of course, i think eight is enough.

you know the drill.  tomorrow morning.  be there.

hello monday

monday holds basketball in the morning for those interested.  i'm interested.  i'll be there.

by the way, how many showed up on friday?

all the fun

if you've had fun playing this past week, make it three days of total basketball excitement.  come friday.  match wits.  battle for victory.  and all this with pals.

how much better could it get?

thank you sir, may i have another...

that about sums up how i felt when i left the gym monday morning.  bill mentioned they were good games.  despite losing--and not being able to drop 94% of my shots--i have to agree.  maybe it was the new floor that made the difference...any difference...whatever.

if you had fun on monday, come back tomorrow.  bonus thing about tomorrow is we won't have to set up after.

Sunday, November 1, 2009


come tomorrow to see the newly refinished floor.  it's ready for some basketball.  it'll never be readier than now.  i'll see you tomorrow morning.
