another video

something else to watch:

only four

i only heard from four definites for tomorrow morning, so we'll meet on friday.

enjoy the morning off!


i saw only a few available for play on wednesday, but i wanted to check if we'd have a solid eight committing.

if i see a firm commitment of eight by 5:00p today, i'll open. if you don't see any updates, sleep in tomorrow.

fyi, i won't be playing tomorrow to rest my knee.

say goodbye

last chance to play this year is monday. it's a perfect way to say goodbye to yesterday...and this year. because soon it will be yesteryear. in fact on wednesday, tuesday will be yesterday AND yesteryear. pretty cool, eh?

oh, well. come despite the jokes.

see you on friday!

open monday

it sounds to me like there is enough interest to play tomorrow, so the gym will be open for hoops on monday.

i know you might be thinking this is a christmas miracle, but i think the miracle will come when we have 10 guys standing around the circle ready to play.

i will always hope...and see you tomorrow morning.

above & beyond

attendance on wednesday was outstanding! i did not expect that.

we had visits from a couple of the originals, mike t and sonny e. then out of the blue, casey shows up, right back to his old shenanigans. almost of original crew seemed to make it and all of the new. the only one missing was, well, the missing nigerian...who is still missing.

that kinda of thing can happen often, as far as i'm concerned, even starting tomorrow. it will seem to me like christmas morning as i wait with anticipation to see who all shows up.

and regarding next week, i see four definites on monday (cary, bryan, issac, me) and six definites on friday (jeff, danny, bryce, cary, bryan, me). i'll get hand counts tomorrow for a final tally. if you are not on either list and should be, let me know via email or make sure i know tomorrow morning.

six more shopping days

when you wake up tomorrow morning, it will be only one week away before christmas. can you believe it? hope your shopping is done. you only have six more days...unless you are really one of "those guys" and are counting seven more shopping days. real men plan ahead. it's not too late.

it's also not too late to set your alarms for tomorrow morning. since we don't play a week from wednesday (since a few of you might be out at that time doing some shopping), get twice as much game in tomorrow morning and giving 107%. what? it's prime.

getting head counts

so, next wednesday is christmas day. i don't plan on being there, and i doubt most of you will too.

monday and friday seem like normal days; but with the traveling that goes on during this time of year, i feel it necessary to to get a head count/commits for those two days.

give the nature of things, we'd need a solid commit of eight both days to play. i don't believe anything less than that will ultimately result in enough for decent games.

use the email list to voice your commit or do it in person one day this week at the circle. we'll put together a tally. but remember: it's a hard commit. that means only death in the family will excuse you. forgetting and oversleeping is not allowed. and changing your mind doesn't even count. (we're men, not women.)

the week before christmas

i hope your shopping is almost done; but if you are looking for what to get the guys at hoops, then your attendance is all they want.

easy ahopping, eh? i think so.

just come. just do it.

good crew!

wednesday's crew was a good one including a few new guys.

tomorrow, we hit the courts again with more action packed hoops. although hopefully not as action packed as trent experienced on wednesday.

(hope you're feeling better, dude.)

'tis the season for hoops. think we could pull this off? we could set up the upwards goals...

come play wednesday!

hoops tomorrow, christmas tonight

tomorrow is hoops as normal, but tonight is west park's second (and final) night of our celebration of christmas.

consider yourself invited to come enjoy the music and celebrate with us.  it starts at 6:00p. jeff has a solo, a few of us are singing in the choir, and there are several very fun songs, one which includes the hardin valley academy drum line.

bring your fams and have a warm, dry seat while we sing for you.

calling out

just a quick call out to a few of our regulars that we've been missing:

trent, how's your back? doing better?

mich, what's going on? not sick, i hope.

bryce, are the kids at school yet?

neal, i know you were there on monday, but will you be there tomorrow?

all of the rest of you, will you make it too?

still shiny

we didn't put too many marks on the newly refinished floor. it still retains some shine. you can still yet see it tomorrow morning when you come play some basketball.

numbers were good on monday, yet still a few were missing.

wednesday yes!

new floor!

come check out the new floor! refinished and shiny! it's just begging for hoops to be played on it. we need to christen it. and we should do with a full compliment.
