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
Sunday, December 21, 2014
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:

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!

'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.

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
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
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.)

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.

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.

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?

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.
Thursday, July 3, 2014
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!

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.

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!

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.
Sunday, June 8, 2014
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).

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.

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.

- 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
- you are pleased with the outcome from the championship game and come tomorrow morning to play inspired by their victorious example

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.

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.
Sunday, February 23, 2014
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:

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.

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.

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
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:

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
Sunday, January 5, 2014
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.
