friday and monday

we play tomorrow morning just like usual, except it's still recovering from last week's turkey feast. another day to recover from that.

it looks as though trent has made it possible to play on monday volunteering his services to come early to tear down and set up afterwards. i had a couple of people volunteer to help with that tear down before hoops, but i would encourage anyone who can to also come give a hand as the rule of many hands applies. i understand if you cannot, so don't stress too much about it.

i open the gym at 5:30a on hoops days. for monday, though, i will try to get there a bit earlier, say 5:15a, to open it up. set your alarms accordingly.

see you all tomorrow.

turkey extraction - hoops day two

this is your second chance to help relieve your gut from stuffing and turkey. after two-games-in-one-hour monday morning, it is obvious that we all need it. come work it off.

Sunday, November 25, 2012


are you ready to work off turkey? boy, i am! i'll see you guys there for turkey extraction.

reminder: happy thanksgiving...and no hoops

i know you guys probably didn't show up on monday, but i wanted to remind you to enjoy your week off and wish you happy overeating day on thursday.

we are not playing tomorrow or friday, so you'll have to deal with your own stuffing in other ways. or we'll just see how sluggish we all are on monday.

i know trent misses you guys. he's probably cried himself to sleep already one night knowing we wouldn't meet in the morning. if anyone else feels the same way, take comfort from the knowledge that we resume hoops monday, novemeber 26.

eat well!

one more, then a week off

we play tomorrow.

don't forget that we are definitely NOT playing next monday and wednesday. this is my last call for anyone wanting to definitively commit for next friday (day after thanksgiving). right now, only trent and i are committed. let me know if you want to play. i'll tally the count and make the final decision early next week. right now, it looks like we'll have a whole week off.

see you in the morning.

happy days

as we approach the middle of november, numbers are good, and that means a happy trent. but who are really kidding? we're all happy with these numbers. of course, we're happy that trent's happy. all we're missing is the fonz.

and we need to finalize on committed people for black friday hoops. in case you've not seen the email, we are NOT playing next monday or wednesday. friday is available if there enough guys. so, i need to get a count of at least eight (8) committed-fo-sure-you-bet-definitely guys for next friday. email is the best way to let me know, or you can show up and tell me too. (trent's coming.)

oh, yeah, tomorrow.

thanks to trent's guide on optimal attendance, we had the perfect number on friday. i would recommend keeping that guide handy as a reminder of what to do when you get up on mondays, wednesdays, and fridays.

speaking of mondays, that's tomorrow. refer to the guide. see you then.

starting early

the past week or so has been a good start to getting me in shape for some delicious turkey in a few weeks. with all the running, i should be prepped for downing some juicy bird meat and stuffing. if we have eight tomorrow, we will still be on track.

by the way, i would encourage you to reference trent's optimal hoops match up math email from a few weeks ago so that we can squash the 4-on-5 teams we've been having.

see ya!

post-election hoops

i am sending this out early this morning to make sure that we have enough people committed to play basketball tomorrow morning. i am sure all of you will be up late at night having election parties waiting as the results come in. just remember that the most important vote that you make as a "yes" to getting up early to play basketball on wednesday morning.

and, yes, we're on.

extra time

the extra hour of sleep should give you plenty if time and energy to show up for hoops tomorrow. we are playing.

by the way, seven on friday? what up?

last daylight of 2012

this weekend is our tine to regain a lost hour. bit don't let that confuse you about hoops. the time to meet will still be the same. that means, i will see you in the morning.
