goodbye 2011 hoops

come say goodbye to 2011 tomorrow morning.  it's been a good year for hoops, and it will be an even better year next year.  i don't know how that will happen, but it probably will, especially if everyone shows up for roundball in january.

the end is near

only the end of the year, not the end of hoops.  we are definitely playing tomorrow.  another chance to work off the leftovers.

the day before the day before christmas and all on the court, all the players were shooting to...what rhymes with "court"?

the stores won't be open until 9:00a anyway, so you might as well show up at 6:00a to play.  that is, unless you do your christmas shopping at walgreen's in which case you could get a good start now and be done just in time for hoops.  no matter what, i'll see you tomorrow.

AND i'll see a certain eight of you on monday.  maybe more.  but definitely eight.

deck the hoops

normally, we'd be sleeping in tomorrow morning, but pete surprised us with extra hoops days!  let's not squander them.  surely you have all been starting with the holiday munchies.  keep that gut in check with one our active games of hoops.  that's tomorrow, yo.

we had considered not playing on monday, december 26, but a few asked about it.  i had received quite a few nays early on, so if you CAN make it this coming monday, let me know BY tomorrow evening.  if i don't hear a solid eight say yes, we won't try.  and remember:  a yes means you are committing to that monday, not a "probably so" vote.

reply to the email thread.  if you are not signed up for the email thread, follow the instructions under the "mailing list" tab at the top first, then cast your vote.

yuletide hoops

it's the most wonderful time of the year.  and with all the extra games of hoops we get to play, it's now even better!  plan on coming out tomorrow morning to keep your gut from getting out of control with all the snacks you will be munching on this week.  maintenance is better than trying to undo.  stay ahead of the game.  play hoops tomorrow.
just a note about monday, december 26.  i had quite a few say that day was not going to work for them.  i think that might be a day we call an off day.  i think we should go ahead and pull that one off the list.  we can discuss tomorrow morning.

back on the schedule!

we have the official word from pete that the gym will indeed be available over the last two weeks in december.  that means we can eat all those sugarplums and stuff at the festive parties with an option to run it all off during some games of hoops.  put it back on your schedules.  and reset the alarms to be there.

if you know you will not be around during the next couple of weeks, send email to the hoops mailing list (or to me directly) so i know if we will have enough to play over the christmas break.  i want to plan ahead as much as i can so some of these guys (including me) won't have to get up early if no one else is going to show.  that would be your christmas gift to me!  thanks in advance!



what about them?  two.  on the second day of christmas, my true love gave those to me.  they weren't on my list, and i can't really say i had secretly longed for them.  why am i bringing the up with you guys?  because we have only two more days to play.  friday and monday.  that's it for this year.  get your games in!

then there were three

are you ready for a break?  i'm not sure i am.  i would like to keep playing through christmas.  alas, the gym won't be available.  we have only the time at hand to make best use of.  so, let's!

tomorrow.  and i've fixed my alarm clock issue.  i'll be there on time tomorrow.  ready to run.

final four

we are down to the final four days left for hoops this year.  how many of you are hoping for a new pair of basketball sneaks?  maybe something in red like jeff's?  if you do get a new pair, you'll have to wait till january 2012 to show them off.  december 19 is our last day this year.

see you monday!

we are down to five days of play left.  advantage is up for the taking.  i know you're with me because you've brought the numbers.  let's finish strong.

counting down

only six times left for us to play this year.  we gotta make the most of them.  we've been having some good numbers lately, which really surprises me.  and it makes me happy.

come get your hoops on before we have to break for christmas!  i'll see you guys in the morning.

it's december and definitely the season for hoops.  i know there's a lot of hype around the christmas event later this month, but right now it's all about the round ball.  eight days of basketball play time left this year.  finish strong.
