last hoops of 2014

say goodbye to 2014 by playing some basketball tomorrow morning. it's the final countdown.

Sunday, December 28, 2014

after christmas nine

we maxed out at nine on friday. ran full court games the whole morning. (i am so not used to running the full anymore.)

open tomorrow.

Thursday, December 25, 2014

merry christmas!

hopefully, your day is merry and bright. enough raised hands warrant morning hoops. i know i could use some gut-reducing games.

watch the short clip below and have a merry christmas!


Tuesday, December 23, 2014

playing christmas eve

the two polls i took yesterday seemed to indicate we would play christmas eve, but we remain uncertain for the day after christmas.

that means we'll get another show of hands for interest in playing on friday.

here's monday's video: http://youtu.be/FxbjH5G2Acc

christmas week hoops - monday

i don't know if we are playing all week (yet), but we are definitely playing tomorrow. we'll get a count in the morning to plan out the rest of the week. i will post results here. stay tuned.

in the meantime, watch friday hoops video:

Thursday, December 18, 2014

the week before christmas

as of tomorrow, you only have six shopping days before christmas. if you don't have presents or a plan, you'd better snap to it. time is running out.

i know what i want. i want a younger body to acrobat around in the same way that allen sayers does, whom i believe has an extremely high midichlorian count. or a pony. i don't think i'll get either.

see you all in the morning.

Tuesday, December 16, 2014

early christmas

we were talking on monday as we were getting ready to play that just a year ago i was scrambling to send out email to get enough people to show up during the christmas time games. i know we had jokingly prayed for numbers to come in. dave said that our prayers have been answered just a few months back looking toward this christmas season. our courts runneth over.

see all of you in the morning!

Sunday, December 14, 2014

big number streak continues

half court games continue. i think we were looking for enough numbers a year ago at this time. times are different. plenty is better than scarce.

by the way, only eleven shopping days until christmas.

Thursday, December 11, 2014

record breaking hoops

'tis the season, eh? twenty-five. that's how many would have been in the mix had dave "the dove" and i had stayed to play. i don't believe we had that many on the monday before thanksgiving.

i was going to reply to mitch telling him to just not let the numbers stop him from coming out to play, but then...twenty-five.

we are open again tomorrow morning for crowd hoops. let's see what happens.

Tuesday, December 9, 2014

cold weather again

i didn't get to post this video for monday so i'm posting it now:

playing tomorrow! see ya!

Thursday, December 4, 2014

halves and full

the half court games continue with record numbers showing up the first week in december.

ok, maybe not that crazy. it has been a full house lately. we still find enough exercise, i think. it's all in how you play your half court games.

of course, we always find the time for at least one full court contest.

and see you tomorrow!

ps: "christmas at west park" is this weekend on saturday and sunday, 6:00p both nights. orchestra, band, and choir along with some spoken pieces kick off our season. free to all. you are officially invited. more details here: http://www.westparkbaptist.org/christmas-at-west-park/

Tuesday, December 2, 2014

december return

the last month of hoops for 2014 has begun. it was a gym of half court games until the end, when a full court game finished off the morning.

it will be christmas before we know it....

monday footage here: http://youtu.be/cIO5ipcUlrg

Sunday, November 30, 2014

back at it!

we are back on the court tomorrow morning. you can deal with the turkey then.

see you!

Tuesday, November 25, 2014

sleep in! no hoops!

in case you missed it, no hoops tomorrow or friday.

sleep in. get your beauty sleep.

you need it!

Sunday, November 23, 2014

tomorrow and then a break

how about those friday hoops, huh? it was the one with the crazy passes: http://youtu.be/omklAZ2QHD8

tomorrow we play and then take a break for the rest of the week. sleep in on wednesday and friday. return next monday when hoops resume...on a brand new floor! well, old floor refinished.

see you in the morning.

Thursday, November 20, 2014

big numbers week

big numbers week continued on wednesday with us starting out playing half courts. after a few games, there was finally the much awaited full court game. a few highlights from that are included in the video below.

see you tomorrow!

ps: remember that tomorrow and monday are the last two days to play before thanksgiving. we'll be taking off the wednesday before and the friday after.

Tuesday, November 18, 2014

getting your fix

we've been having the numbers lately. i suppose this is to be expected with holidays coming up. maybe cold weather, but i think probably the calendar.

get your fix for the next three hoops mornings (wed, fri, mon) because the floor will be taking a break for a fresh face next wednesday and friday.

that's right: after-turkey day will be a downer for us hoops goers. you'll probably be overdosed on tryptophan anyway, sprawled on the couch watching parades with your kids. it IS holiday.

Sunday, November 16, 2014

snow maybe

there might be a slight chance of snow somewhere in the forecast, but no ice on our court. you can thank dave for the clean floor on friday. video is proof.

zamboni...dave?: http://youtu.be/XR7Q56CGi5M

Thursday, November 13, 2014


there might be a little snow falling right now, but that won't stop you guys from throwing some chains on your tires and heading over tomorrow morning for hoops, right?

i didn't think so.

midweek again: http://youtu.be/GDsgEhkUdbs

Tuesday, November 11, 2014

let the good times roll

many great moments on monday. get in, run hard, sub out...that's my recipe for keeping my gut at bay as we head into the season of more food.

i just wish i could jump like mitch or allen.

anyway, watch this and enjoy:

Sunday, November 9, 2014

cold war

cold is for the temps this week. war is for the battle between two teams on the court. hopefully the gym won't be as cold as the outsides.

this sounds a little james brown-ish.


shut your mouth!

Thursday, November 6, 2014

fun video to watch!

watch the post-election day hoops video: http://youtu.be/LmyupIgjr8s

come play tomorrow morning!

Tuesday, November 4, 2014

vote for hoops!

whether you voted blue or red today, make sure you vote orange tomorrow morning... for hoops.

Thursday, October 30, 2014


do you have your costume ready for friday? coming dressed up as a basketball player is lame because everyone else will be doing that. so, pick a winner. i hear pirate dave will dressing up as a pirate.

watch the video below for wednesday fun:

Tuesday, October 28, 2014

exciting hoops

monday's hoops were exciting. see?


Thursday, October 23, 2014

one week to prep

a week from tomorrow is halloween. that means candy around the house. that marks the beginning of snack season (halloween to thanksgiving to christmas and all the parties in between).

now is the time to plan for those moments so that you aren't stressed about consumption because you are burning it all off in rigorous games of hoops. all you gotta do is come each morning, run hard, and stay fit! easy-peasey.

you can start tomorrow.

last game: http://youtu.be/yf2hhQGN8es

Thursday, October 16, 2014


i'm making sure tonight my alarm goes off tomorrow so that the west park security alarm doesn't.

set your alarms! see you in the morning!

Tuesday, October 14, 2014

more hoops

tomorrow morning.


Sunday, October 12, 2014

rainy monday

it was a rainy weekend and possibly a rainy monday. best to start it off with an indoor game of hoops.

sound good? i thought so.

Tuesday, October 7, 2014

more games

thanks for helping set up on monday. we knocked that out quickly.

back at it tomorrow! set-up free!

a few good games: http://youtu.be/10awa6sVK8k

Sunday, October 5, 2014

start bundling

cold weather is starting. dress warmer than normal but take heart that you leave plenty warmed from all the hoops.

here we go!

Thursday, October 2, 2014

say hi to dave

make sure when you get to hoops in the morning that you say hi to dave.

it's important.

do it.

and play some great hoops.

Tuesday, September 30, 2014

it's finally here!


(imagine that said with monster truck announcer voice.)

enjoy the sport all month long!

Thursday, September 25, 2014

Tuesday, September 23, 2014


you know that sound! it's when the net makes when it slows the round ball on a no-rim shot. just like the cheese.

now you want a sandwish, dontcha?

more hoops tomorrow!

Sunday, September 21, 2014

remember friday?

if you don't, the vid should help. and keep in mind that it was the third game.


we play tomorrow.

Thursday, September 18, 2014

they will never take...OUR FREEDOM!

scots are voting for their independence today. by the time morning hoops rolls around, it could all be said and done and determined.

in honor of that event, feel free to don the war paint on your face and play some aggressive hoops. (just no kilts, ok?)

watch the video blow for some wednesday memories.

cool kids wednesday: http://youtu.be/3g4Mxlj_UFg

Tuesday, September 16, 2014


cooler temps are beginning to show up. after a few humid weeks, the fall feel is a welcome one.

know what is also cool? hoops. all the cool kids play morning hoops.

be cool. show up and play hoops.

that is all.

Thursday, September 11, 2014

tomorrow morning good for everyone?

i hope so. or maybe not everyone, but at least ten.

review some of wednesday's games...

a few short clips: http://youtu.be/JtzOvwnUn58

Tuesday, September 9, 2014


that's what time the gym opens. warm up time for 20 minutes. then you'll be ready for exciting games at 0600.

set alarms!

Sunday, September 7, 2014


hoops is where it's at! no handegg in the mornings at the gym. basketball year round!

so, tomorrow. be there.

Thursday, September 4, 2014

short week hoops

the week might be short (work-wise), but the hoops aren't. monday brought a good crew out. wendesday brought back trent "visa" eidemiller. and bryan got bionics.

see what happens when you miss a day? here, this might help you feel better:

Sunday, August 31, 2014

Thursday, August 28, 2014

long weekend hoops

friday starts a long weekend for us here in the north america. if you are taking friday off, it will be even longer for you. (i did the math.)

tomorrow is normal...and so is monday, if we have enough. i assume we would, but prudence dictates that i get some commits before i set my alarm for monday at 5:00. so, shout out if you're in. (i will get a show of hands tomorrow too.)

Tuesday, August 26, 2014

back and forth

more exercise on monday. a lot of running like last week. dave "the dove" didn't drink his red bull. it would have been a good day for it.

Sunday, August 24, 2014

more fast games

i believe i found a pic that more accurately depicts how fast the games are. dave "the dove" brought in his twelve ounce red bull on friday, and he was all over the place.

however you get your caffeine, we play tomorrow. see you there!

Thursday, August 21, 2014

fast games at west park gym

picture doesn't really portray it, but wednesday yielded some fast paced games. at least, i though so.

more games tomorrow. might be as fast.

Tuesday, August 19, 2014

happy birthday, trent

hope it was a good one, visa. in your honor, we'll be playing hoops tomorrow morning. you're welcome.

and in case you missed it, this is how monday went down: http://youtu.be/-VJYcEtDxNA

Sunday, August 17, 2014


playing hoops tomorrow is better when you bring your sneaks. so bring them. and be ready to play. it will be fun.

Thursday, August 14, 2014

waffle house after

friday starts with rousing game of basketball followed by your favorite plate of something scattered, smothered, and maybe covered at everyone's favorite: waffle house!

make no mistake. i am not buying. but you are more than welcome to join me.

hoops first, though.

Tuesday, August 12, 2014


he wants you there in the morning.

don't disappoint wilson.

Sunday, August 10, 2014

ready for another week?

hoops again tomorrow. who's in?

Thursday, August 7, 2014


gym is open at 5:40 leaving plenty of warm up time. no need to have a morning missing shots.

shenanigans: http://youtu.be/tXF_4UFtKnc

Tuesday, August 5, 2014

massive monday


that's the legal voting age--reminder: don't forget to vote today--and how many we had on monday. pretty massive.

i expect wednesday to be a little lighter since several have work schedules that only let them out on monday mornings. whatever the case, we'll play again.

thanks, trent and crew, for getting the tables and chairs up for the senior luncheon.

Sunday, August 3, 2014

here we go again

another monday. another new month. another august.

it'll be a good morning yo get up and play hoops tomorrow.

Thursday, July 31, 2014

Tuesday, July 29, 2014

good games

we've been having some good counts. looking forward to the morning. it should be fun.

you guys ready?

Sunday, July 27, 2014


we doubled this many on friday by the time game one was over. made for some exciting hoops. four games worth even.

you've had the weekend. hope your rested.

Thursday, July 24, 2014

good games on wednesday

looking for good games tomorrow morning!

here. watch this short clip: http://youtu.be/kbly4PdDvV8

Tuesday, July 22, 2014


numbers are up. we managed to play some full court games on monday all morning. good exercise.

the player plethora continues. in light of this, i would like to reiterate the two O's of subbing: on offense and often. as long as it's done like that, it should be smooth sailing.

see you in the morning!

Sunday, July 20, 2014

big hoops moday

big crowd on friday made for plenty of games. i heard it went till 7:30, well past our normal end time. probably will be a few more days like to come.

remember to come early for warm up. doors unlock at 5:40. that gives you 20 minutes of warm up time.

Thursday, July 17, 2014

come early

plenty of warm up time available if you get there by 5:40.

Tuesday, July 15, 2014

action hoops

hoops wednesday will be as action packed as monday. we have the pirate dave and h-bomb back this week. full compliment on the court. and nate's streak was a little impacted...but not much.

if you missed it, tomorrow is full of opportunities.

by the way, anyone seen mitch?

Sunday, July 13, 2014

ready for more?

we go again tomorrow. who is ready for some hoops? (i think nate is.)

Thursday, July 10, 2014


five on monday. seven on wednesday. how many will there be on friday?

the wednesday seven: http://youtu.be/USEIQ5_tPL0

Tuesday, July 8, 2014

send the other team tomorrow!

our team was there on monday. where were the rest of you?

we'll be there again tomorrow. we'll play whomever shows up.

gauntlet down.

Sunday, July 6, 2014

crossing trent

i heard trent brought a new brand of defense on friday. seems jeff caught a right cross while trying for possession. looks like the gloves have come off.

come for a no-holds-barred morning of hoops... if you're man enough. and bring a mouth guard.

see you!

Thursday, July 3, 2014

happy independence day!

looks like there will be enough for independence day hoops! since there will be a lot of grillin' going on, getting in a few trips down the court won't hurt. maybe jeff will sing "the star-spangled banner" to kick off the morning's games.

set alarms for friday! happy birthday, america!

Tuesday, July 1, 2014

patriot hoops

do you love america? come play hoops tomorrow. it's very american to do so.

also, make sure you voice your commitment for friday tomorrow morning. i believe we have about four? five?

Sunday, June 29, 2014

freedom hoops

short week coming up. instead of darks and lights, teams should be red versus white or white against blue or red battling blue. you know, the colors of our flag. (i knew you knew that.)

also, plans are right now to play on friday even though you probably won't head into the office. but it's always prudent to make sure enough are committed. sound off now.

Tuesday, June 24, 2014

play casual

casually show up at 5:45 to get some warm up time in.

casual hoops: http://youtu.be/_ZBObbw6ylw

Sunday, June 22, 2014

serious basketball?

are you ready for some serious basketball basketball tomorrow?

serious basketball: http://youtu.be/FesYaCgYAAM

Thursday, June 19, 2014

longest day

enjoy friday, for it is the longest day this year. after tomorrow, the days will start getting shorter again. (i like the long days.)

it will probably be hot too. dress accordingly.

Tuesday, June 17, 2014

interesting week

i know trent had expectations both met and dashed in a few simple steps from his jeep into the gym.

that was the start to what will probably be an interesting week. we had eight, thanks to john showing up right before the circle of prayer. something tells me tomorrow will be either good or outrageous.

alarm is set. in a few hours, it will be revealed.

and then there will be friday.

Sunday, June 15, 2014

are you ready?

we return to the court tomorrow morning for some hoops action after (mostly) a week off.  i hope your time away was recuperative. or maybe you found an alternative form of exercise similar to that of our awesome three-day-a-week activity.

either way, it will be good to see the crew again and get back to battle for mere points like we always do.

see you in the morning!

Monday, June 9, 2014

take the rest of the week off

the wp has a full week of vbs in the works starting today. that means the gym will be unavailable until next monday, june 16.

only a small band showed up this morning. mike taylor, zamboni mike, the dove, gary banks, and trent "visa" eidemiller. you read that right. only five. but they played it because these guys are hard core and playing with small, odd numbers is how they roll.

get your beauty rest, ladies, and show up next monday. we'll be playing like we've had a week off.

june 16

Sunday, June 8, 2014

vbs schedule this week

i was informed that the gym will be occupied on wednesday and friday and thusly will be unavailable. that leaves monday to get all the massive hoop playing in. and even though i ended that last sentence with a preposition, you get the point.

so, to repeat: play hard monday. rest up wendesday and friday. then come back the following monday for hard play again (to make up for the missing two days).

Thursday, June 5, 2014

lighter mornings

has anyone noticed how light the sky is at 5:30 these days? it's pretty bright. i love this time of year when the days are getting longer.

oh, you thought i meant not as many guys based on my subject? hahaha, no. we had the right number on wednesday. trent even talked us into an extra regular game that morning.

i'll be there bright and early tomorrow!

Tuesday, June 3, 2014


i would like to say thanks for proving me wrong on monday. we ended up with more than seven. that was great.

we will play basketball tomorrow morning too. more playing. might as well get up and come.

Sunday, June 1, 2014

sleep now!

tomorrow morning will be here before you know it. if you go to sleep now, you will be able to get enough and be on time for hoops.

don't forget to set your alarm!

Thursday, May 29, 2014


we reach the end of the month again. been some good hoops this past month. decent exercise, good numbers...

oh, well, there! i just said it! of course, now, that means NO ONE will show up tomorrow. we'll have, like, seven people. odd and right in the middle of no really enough to play 3-on-3 or 4-on-4. i know how it goes. i've been here before.

and i'll be there in the morning too...again. for whomever decides to show. i'll be one of the seven. see the other six of you!

good times and stuff!

Sunday, May 25, 2014

play memorial day

i believe there to be enough committed for decent teams tomorrow. i say that expecting ten, but i wonder if we will have more than that.

same time as always. no changes to anything. see those who show in the morning.

long weekend hoops: http://youtu.be/iodnXLm_VX4

Thursday, May 22, 2014


the dove changed hoops for us a little on wednesday turning a mere injury into intimidating war paint.

david wallace has a message for you all: "you may take our gym, but you will take our HOOPS!"

those who are willing to stand tall, meet at the circle.

Tuesday, May 20, 2014


on behalf of the eight that showed up on monday, we'd like two more to join us tomorrow.


Sunday, May 18, 2014

ready tomorrow?

last week's games were intense. good matchups, aggressive playing, burnt calories. it was fun.

hoping for more good times to roll this week.

here's how last week ended: http://youtu.be/ZNOfEMcnFDA

Thursday, May 15, 2014

epic games on wednesday were epic

i can't speak for the rest of you guys, but wednesday's games were tough yet fun.

good battles. good victories.

we battle again tomorrow. basketball warriors apply. show up tomorrow for more epicness.

all that or we'll be so wiped out from wednesday's games that we'll be dragging ourselves down the court all morning. 

but let's go with epic for now!

Tuesday, May 13, 2014

good playing

we've had some great games if hoops lately. i'll be there tomorrow for more like it.

training video #1: http://youtu.be/xWHyAlkvE14

Sunday, May 11, 2014

your momma

i hope you called your momma...cuz you can't call her tomorrow when your losing your basketball games.

you can still go crying home to her if you lose. that's right. go on.

but site up in the morning first.

Thursday, May 8, 2014

prelude to a rainy weekend

rain doesn't start until friday night. since you won't be able to frolic in the outdoors hindered by falling sky water, exercise could still happen in an enclosed, dry gym. ("dry" meaning that you don't run into pirate dave.)

need more incentive? watch the vid below.

hump day hoops: http://youtu.be/R8qCkqBO_DU

Tuesday, May 6, 2014

may seven

there is no significance to this date other than it's a wednesday and that means hoops.

same time too.

in the morning.

Sunday, May 4, 2014


you know what tomorrow is. so it makes sense that we try to have a perfect ten show up (five-on-five).

let's make every effort for that goal.

Friday, May 2, 2014

hoops time!

i meant to send this out yesterday, time expired without me realizing it.

so i give the early morning edition!

wake up!

come play hoops!

zamboni mike is back and cleaning the floor just for you. don't let his sacrifice go in vain. be a player.

Tuesday, April 29, 2014

shot of the year

it's still before the half, but i think it's safe to say that bryan's save-shot on monday will end up being the epic shot of 2014. it will indeed remain in our hearts and minds for many years to come. my only regret is not capturing it on (digital) film for public viewing.

but epic doesn't take a holiday. there's always another morning (like tomorrow) to come make your epic dreams come true. (if we have enough, there is a possibility it could be caught on tape. digitally.)

Sunday, April 27, 2014


are you ready for another week? remember hoops last wedensday when it was like this?

i'm hoping for more of that tomorrow morning.

see you then!

Thursday, April 24, 2014

rainy friday

rain in the forecast tomorrow. if it's gonna be soggy, then you might as well come play some hoops. zamboni mike will have a clean floor waiting for you.

zamboni mike again: http://youtu.be/1nP3NAK3ZkQ

Sunday, April 20, 2014

resurrection monday

we celebrate Christ rising from the dead today, but you might need your alarm to rise from the dead of your slumber tomorrow morning. do whatever you need to.

trent says you'll be decorating basketballs. sounds like fun.

Thursday, April 17, 2014

good friday time again

it will be a good friday if enough show up. if YOU show up, it could be enough. you'll never know if don't try.


Tuesday, April 15, 2014

gym will be open

no matter what the spring weather is, it will be open.

Sunday, April 13, 2014

good day

it was a good day on sunday. rain is coming over the next two days. good thing our court is enclosed.

not enough to get you up tomorrow? how some video?

short clips: https://youtu.be/binUejvTyro

Thursday, April 10, 2014

long shorts

it seems that lopsided wednesday left everyone either very happy or very beat. nevertheless, if you were there then and come back tomorrow, we promise not to leave the teams in such an unbalanced state.

we also promise to wear the long shorts of today and not the "other" shorts of the 70s.

Tuesday, April 8, 2014

the way i see it...

...you have two responses:
  1. you are unhappy with the outcome from last night's championship game and come tomorrow morning to live out how you would have played to win the game
  2. you are pleased with the outcome from the championship game and come tomorrow morning to play inspired by their victorious example

there is a common denominator. i'll leave it to you to figure it out. and remember: all who come to play are all winners!

Sunday, April 6, 2014

a good day to play

tomorrow is a good day to...play some basketball. don't believe me? show up, and i'll show you.

Thursday, April 3, 2014

rainy season

as we enter the rainy season of spring, don't be lulled back to sleep by the white noise of falling water on your roof or pounding against the outside wall of your bedroom. roll back over and wait for the alarm to wake you up for something more exciting that high velocity winds or house shaking thunder. k?

see you in the morning.

Tuesday, April 1, 2014

full court

i love this pano photo that google photos stitched together from several shots from one location. it's a full court of players, which is exactly what we need tomorrow. can you find you...and you and you?

Sunday, March 30, 2014

clean floors

he gets there early to sweep the floor. he'll do whatever it takes to make sure it's in good shape for the morning's hoops.

he's zamboni mike: http://youtu.be/g9PHuF0D1zY

come take advantage of his clean floors. see you tomorrow.

Thursday, March 27, 2014

march out

we are at the end of another march. time flies like the wind. fruit flies like bananas.

come say goodbye to march in a very non-verbal way.

see you!

Tuesday, March 25, 2014

spring snow

crazy, huh?

what's not crazy is hoops at 6:00 tomorrow morning.

because you're used to it.

because you love it.

Sunday, March 23, 2014

cold morning hoops

freeze warnings have been issued, but we have been preparing for this all winter this year. and what better way to warm up: play hoops.

remember your training. play hoops tomorrow.

Thursday, March 20, 2014

warmer days

it's spring now. warmer days are coming slowly.

hoops is still happening tomorrow. 

Tuesday, March 18, 2014

tis the hoops season

don't be up all late watching march madness that you don't get to play the next morning! i know it's tempting, but that why tivos exist.

tivo the rest of the game, go to sleep, come play hoops, watch the rest of the game while getting ready for work, all caught up.

plan achieved.

Sunday, March 16, 2014

no negotiations

what? more threats of snow again? bah! we will not give into threats! we do negotiate with terrorist weather!

as usual, it's on tomorrow morning. see you then!

Thursday, March 13, 2014

hot & cold

temperatures may fluctuate outside, but the climate is always right in the gym. we keep it nice and comfortable for games. so don't worry about anything. just show up tomorrow to play hoops.

Tuesday, March 11, 2014


good games on monday. eight. four on four. good times.

eight again tomorrow? that would be nice. yeah?

money's worth monday

i feel like i got my money's worth on monday morning. the exercise was enough to handle that stack of pancakes i ate on saturday morning. 

more hoops tomorrow morning. be there!

cold weather betting

forecast says more winter weather possible starting overnight and tomorrow morning. right now, i don't believe a real threat to our play time is high. however, i am willing to take bets. these bets won't stop me from showing up to play. i plan on business as usual.

special thanks to mike to helped break down the gym on friday. that guy is a trooper, always on site before me making sure the floor is clear and clean.

interesting week of hoops

hoops starts tomorrow morning like normal. wednesday hoops is normal too. but we will need to start a little early on friday to clear the gym for play. just put it on your schedule.

oh, and here's a vid from last friday:

i hope you are all rested from wednesday. only have one team show up from monday. 

i know i wasn't there, but i need to give my knee a break between the serious games we play on mondays so that i can play again on fridays. (they are serious games, yo!)

so, that's at least one more for tomorrow.

who else?

feels like spring (spirit)

it might not stay this warm until spring officially starts, so enjoy it while you can. getting up early is easier when it isn't so cold. go for it!

Sunday, February 16, 2014

no more snow

warmer weather is on the way. our "snowball" fight from friday is on youtube:


enjoy that and show up tomorrow.

Thursday, February 13, 2014

snowball fight

that's what i am calling tomorrow's morning of games even though all the snow will probably be gone by this evening.

same time tomorrow. see you then!

Tuesday, February 11, 2014


i don't think anyone expected the crowd we had on monday. it's always better than not enough.

the weather on wednesday shouldn't happen till long after hoops is over, so no excuses there.

see you guys tomorrow!

Sunday, February 9, 2014

before the cold

word on the street is that bad weather is coming soon. monday looks good. wednesday may be iffy, probably won't a big deal. but getting in your hoops tomorrow is a good decision as getting milk and bread before tuesday.

see you in the morning.

wedensday plus one

heard there were only seven on wednesday. if those same seven show tomorrow, i'll make it eight.

i put a few clips together from previous captures since i didn't get any new footage on wednesday.

Tuesday, February 4, 2014

kicked off

february kicked off with eleven guys. both teams were buzzing. some really good games. fun to play.

highlights here:

Sunday, February 2, 2014

the next month

it's already the next month of this year. warm weather. that should mean normal number of guys since the cold weather seems to be a deterrent.

the more, the better. i'm hoping for ten.

resume hoops tomorrow

we will resume normally scheduled hoops tomorrow morning. i hope you enjoyed the snow day, sleeping in, then getting up to make a snow fort and battle neighborhood kids in epic snow battles that were reminiscent of when the rebels defended their echo base on hoth.

monday's hoops were good. we had nine. here's the proof:

see you tomorrow!

to play or not play

well, i think i had better check to see if anyone will be making any attempt in the morning to play some hoops. in my experience, i've usually been the only one to show when there is about this much snow. (sometimes less.)

i'm thinking it's gonna be a snow day for hoops too. what is your take?

Sunday, January 26, 2014

come back

if you were there on friday, come back tomorrow. if you weren't there on friday, you can come too! let's face it: tomorrow is a good come back day.

so, see ya!

Thursday, January 23, 2014


that was wednesday. seven. eight tomorrow?

i plan on being there tomorrow. sorry about wednesday. knee requested pto.

cold weather doesn't count

schools might close because of extremely cold weather, but we will always play despite the temperature.

remember how fun hoops on monday was? here's a little reminder what it was like:


note: no players were harmed during the making of this video.

Sunday, January 19, 2014

let's play some hoops

what do you say? some hoops in the morning? even teams perhaps?

i will be there.

Thursday, January 16, 2014

long weekend ahead

good numbers on wednesday. good numbers on friday?

weather shouldn't keep anyone at bay...unless you're michael bay. then a losing your place on a teleprompter will keep you at bay.

and i believe it's safe to say that monday play is a go. nothing different there.

just water?

looks like just water out there this morning. shouldn't be s problem, but drive safely anyway.

Tuesday, January 14, 2014

winter wonderland?

i don't know what will end up being the weather in the morning, but plans are normal for now.

our rule, however, is that if schools are called off, we will not play. it might be too early for the decision to be made on school, so pay attention to the email list and/or blog.

Sunday, January 12, 2014

start of another week

it's the start a of another week, and hoops is on the list like normal. i will see you guys in the morning.

oh, and here's another video from friday:


Thursday, January 9, 2014


who's got two thumbs and is ready to play some hoops tomorrow morning?

this guy!

i know you're probably in for some games too. see you in the morning.

ps: pirate dave, shut up!

Tuesday, January 7, 2014

more on wednesday

we had this many (see pic) show up yesterday. we we able to get our standard three games in plus squeezed in a straight-11 at the end.

if you can get your car started tomorrow morning, it's business as usual. if you have spent any time in new york or michigan, you have no excuse for not showing up.

Monday, January 6, 2014

made it

well, i'm here. where are the rest of you guys?

i would note to be VERY careful in the parking lot. almost slipped twice trying to get in. (the ice is black.)

Sunday, January 5, 2014

be there in the morning

i will be there in the morning. several have said the roads are no problem. so, there will be art least four of us.

snow and hoops

normally, i would tell you to watch the news for school closing to determine if we will play, but school doesn't start until tuesday. and that is our guide going forward while school is in effect.

i believe that poor weather will disqualify hoops tomorrow morning. i can be there even if earth's crust were separating since i live so close. but i think that if there is significant snow on the ground, it would be prudent to call it off.

so, look out your windows or check westparkhoops.com or email for updates.

Thursday, January 2, 2014

ready to go again?

friday is on! another year if hoops begins tomorrow. all your favorites people will be on the court in the morning to meet you, so don't disappoint.

see you then.
