take the morning off

i have not been feeling well since monday and believe sleeping in tomorrow morning is a good bet.  as such, i won't be able to open the gym in the morning, so you get to sleep in too.

i think friday will look better.  sorry.

yes, we are

if you were questioning whether or not we are playing hoops tomorrow morning, the answer is yes.  normal time, normal drill.

i should bring to your attention once again to check thsle calendar at westparkhoops.com to see when we have a few scheduled days off in march.  it is not to far away.

weather or not

we'll be playing, weather or not.  the rain will probably wake you up anyway.  might as well play some hoops.

i used to think the email notices would jinx the numbers.  then when there was no email, we had some lower numbers.  now, i'm not convinced the email was the problem.  but whatever it was that has caused this slump. you can get over that by showing up tomorrow.  the rest of us there who are still showing up will appreciate it.

no real bad weather

odds are there is no real bad weather to stop us from playing hoops tomorrow.  there's nothing to stop us now.  so, i'll see you at the gym, 'cause that's where we play.

i've almost got the mailing list back online.  troubleshooting one last piece of the install.  should be back this week.

we want you...

...to get out of bed on friday so there doesn't have to be another 2-on-2 game like on wednesday.  these guys mean it.


ps:  the email list will hopefully be back up this evening at the earliest, over the weekend most likely.  you can always check here for status when that list is down for maintenance/upgrades.

nothing's changed

as i mentioned on monday, server with distribution list is being upgraded.  email list is still down for the moment, but we are still playing tomorrow morning.  i hope to have it back up before my normal message sent for friday hoops.  you can always check here in case the email is down.

cold mornings don't count

basketball is a hot sport.  cold mornings don't count.  real men brave cold weather.  be brave.  be real.

what a feeling

i have a feeling we'll have balanced teams tomorrow.  a matched five on each side.  why do i think this?  because it's friday.  and people come out on friday.  i just know it.  don't believe me?  come and see if i'm right!

ps:  pirate dave, don't think for one moment i'll show up wearing leg warmers based on that title.

bring spares

as you might remember, we were missing our ball cage on monday.  i don't know if anything has changed, but it is still a good idea to bring a basketball if you have one.  just toss it in your vehicle and have it ready for tomorrow morning.  plus, it'll be ready in case you end up in some stand off on the street and it all comes down to a basketball show down.  for those times, it's best to be ready with your own round ball.  you'd look like a punk if you had to borrow one.  be prepared is the lesson here.

i'll see you all tomorrow.

what better way to celebrate ronald reagan's birthday than some early morning hoops?  i know i can't think of anything.  come out and win one for the gipper!

(he'd have been 101 today.)

super what?

who cares about football!  hoops is where it's at.  and tomorrow, it's at the gym.  nothing's changed.  same place, same time.  be there so you can say you were.
