warm up with hoops
Thursday, December 1, 2016
as the last month starts, we are finally getting cooler days. christmas is on its way. but hoops stay steady as always.
shameless plug: christmas at west park is this weekend starting on friday, december 2, at 7:00p, and again on sunday, december 4, at 6:00p. if you want to get set for the season, cone listen to a few of the guys you know sing along with our choir and orchestra as we kick things off. just show up. two nights only.
Tuesday, November 29, 2016
end of november
can you believe it? the last month of this year.
but we are here. might as well play from hoops.
Sunday, November 27, 2016
had a good extended day of hoops on black friday. we begin the stretch to christmas. many days of holiday snacks and eating. keeping up the exercise plan will be the best thing. don't wait for resolutions after.
so, we're back in the gym tomorrow.
here was friday in two videos:
Thursday, November 24, 2016
black friday, orange basketball
after you drop your wives at the mall to get the best deals ever, you can drive over to the gym to work off the feast. i know i will need it. ugh! ate too much!
same bat time tomorrow.
by the way, i made this pumpkin pie for our family's meal....
Wednesday, November 23, 2016
Sunday, November 20, 2016
it's finally here
turkey week is now. you can still show up to kick in the exercise to combat the feast on thursday.
we should be on a normal schedule this week. stay tuned for any changes.
Thursday, November 17, 2016
fridays usually mean guaranteed running. i need the exercise before next thursday.
i will probably feel like i am running fast, but it will really be more like in the video.
Tuesday, November 15, 2016
full court monday
full court wednesday?
we can most certainly try!
here we go!
Sunday, November 13, 2016
we're now less than two weeks away from turkey day with all the fixin's, so you don't have long to do some gut subtraction before gut addition happens.
we did have some response from the last pulse announcement, which is a good start. bring a friend and let's run off waist space in advance.
Friday, November 11, 2016
weather with isaac
Thursday, November 10, 2016
i don't know about anyone else, but i am ready for a weekend. but before that, we need to play some hoops.
you know the drill: tomorrow morning, hoops. it's just that simple.
so, to recap: sleep, wake up tomorrow morning, play hoops.
Tuesday, November 8, 2016
by the time we will be playing, results will be in. we will know the outcome and be moving on with our lives.
one thing that won't change from the outcome: hoops. and what better way to divert your mind from all the crazy election stuff than with a focused game of hoops.
see you then!
Sunday, November 6, 2016
before you vote, get a good game of basketball out of the way. who knows what america will look like the next time we meet on the court.
see you in the morning! 🏀
Thursday, November 3, 2016
are you ready for the weekend? morning hoops will get you there.
Tuesday, November 1, 2016
welcome to november
that's right! it's turkey month! all the leftover candy from overstocking for the kiddos' visits has already started the need for running off the sugar, unless you gave out vegetables and fruit to which i can honestly say i hope your yard was totally TP-ed.
BTD (big turkey dinner) is coming quickly to a table near you. and of course, it will have all the "fixin's." now is the time to plan for the onslaught of food by coming to a few extra practices--er, games.
plenty if slots around the center court on mondays and wednesdays (yes, that's tomorrow!).
hope to see you!
Sunday, October 30, 2016
how about monday?
ready for some monday hoops? friday was good. monday can be just as good.
so, see you tomorrow.
Thursday, October 27, 2016
who's ready for some friday hoops?
after a one friday break, we are back on the hardwood for some serious round ball action. yes, doors open at the regular time tomorrow morning. set your clocks and grab your shoes. it's on like donkey something.
Tuesday, October 25, 2016
back to regular
i know friday was a big let down last week, but it was for a worthy cause.
we are back to regular this week. starting yesterday and continuing tomorrow.
yes, and friday too.
see you all of them.
Thursday, October 20, 2016
no hoops this friday!
the gym is set up for an event this friday and is unavailable to us. we'll resume normal schedule next week.
have a good weekend!
Tuesday, October 18, 2016
last day this week
come get some court time in while you can. we are closed on friday (oct 21).
see you in the morning!
Sunday, October 16, 2016
two day week
this is a short week for us. we only have the gym available on monday and wednesday.
only two days to get your game on. see you in the morning.
Thursday, October 13, 2016
Sunday, October 9, 2016
full court on monday
how about we get enough for full court for monday? let's shoot for that. i know a few faithfuls. they always show up. i know we can do it.
see you tomorrow.
Tuesday, October 4, 2016
still good games
last few weeks have been some good games on mondays and wednesdays. guess what day tomorrow is?
that's right! one of those days!
i will be there in the morning!
Sunday, October 2, 2016
ready for october
i am ready for some fall temps. don't get me wrong. i like summer. but fall is welcome at this point.
anyhoo, hoops in the morning for anyone who needs a round ball fix.
Sunday, September 25, 2016
how about tomorrow?
what do you say about some hoops tomorrow morning? good times?
what do you say? some exercise? some action
set alarms. show up!
Thursday, September 22, 2016
a good wednesday
the workout on wednesday was more than i expected and definitely welcomed. (it's always amazing to see people who can leap buildings in a single bound.)
i believe that tomorrow will be just as fun filled. welcome to fall!
Tuesday, September 20, 2016
i don't know if this helps, but...
Sunday, September 18, 2016
how about some full court?
can we get the numbers for a full court monday AND wednesday? we should definitely try. i mean, why not? running is good!
ok, settled. all y'all, set your alarms. wow! i just sounded country.
Thursday, September 15, 2016
Thursday, September 8, 2016
ready for friday?
here's a video to get you in the mood...
Tuesday, September 6, 2016
short work week, normal hoops week
Saturday, September 3, 2016
some asked, and here's the official answer: yes, we will be open for hoops on monday, which is labor day.
there was enough interest on friday to open it up, so it will be available.
maybe because it's a holiday we can all go out to waffle house for a labor-y breakfast. who's game?
Thursday, September 1, 2016
september kick-off hoops
Tuesday, August 30, 2016
last august hoops day
come say good-bye to august 2016 by playing some basketball with pals. the month was a good one, but it's time for september.
don't worry, though. we'll kick off september hoops on friday.
Sunday, August 28, 2016
could use a few extra
if you have been coming on wednesdays but not mondays, how about coming tomorrow instead of wednesday...or how about both? why not double down on good games?
i will be there. anyone else want to join me?
Thursday, August 25, 2016
Tuesday, August 23, 2016
Sunday, August 21, 2016
Thursday, August 18, 2016
the band back together
we getting it tomorrow. ready for a new floor? we've broken it in for you.
we're back on the court tomorrow.
Tuesday, August 16, 2016
i gotta wear shades!
the floor is so bright now that is has been redone. it's the cleanest floor i have ever seen.
grab your shades and swing by tomorrow to play some round ball!
Monday, August 15, 2016
wow! the floor!
Sunday, August 14, 2016
we should be back tomorrow. there might be another day depending on if i hear anything today, but i am planning on being there in the morning.
set your alarms for now yet keep an eye on email.
Thursday, August 11, 2016
last day off
we are off tomorrow, and it will be our last day off for this two week stint. we'll resume on monday with our normal schedule.
i suggest waffle house tomorrow if you haven't tried it. fun times! see for yourself.
Tuesday, August 9, 2016
nope, not yet
Sunday, August 7, 2016
another week off
we begin our second week of hoops break. so, sleep in, head to work early, get some waffle house breakfast.
see you in a week!
Thursday, August 4, 2016
Tuesday, August 2, 2016
reminder: no hoops
in case you need a reminder, no hoops tomorrow or friday or next week either.
sleep in or head to waffle house for breakfast with a pal.
Sunday, July 31, 2016
NO hoops for the next TWO weeks
the gym floor is being redone again. this time, we are out for the next couple of weeks.
i will send a note when things are available again.
have fun at the waffle house!
Friday, July 29, 2016
the last friday in july
and the count was...twelve!
Thursday, July 28, 2016
not fibonacci. just a simple sequence?
we'll probably have more than that.
Tuesday, July 26, 2016
the other team
we had five on monday. our team showed. where is the other team? you can show up tomorrow and see if you are worthy for glory and songs.
Thursday, July 21, 2016
nines so far
Tuesday, July 19, 2016
Sunday, July 17, 2016
ready to go?
weekend turned out to be enjoyable outdoor weather. hope you got to live in it some.
daily grind starts back tomorrow. but no worries. we have a gym to play some basketball to get you going.
you know where to go. see you then!
Sunday, July 10, 2016
wake up for hoops
tomorrow is monday. wake up for hoops. come play games while you can.
Sunday, July 3, 2016
if the neighbors blasting fireworks tonight don't keep you up, you can join us for some independent hoops in the morning. the numbers look good enough to do this.
instead of dark and light teams, we'll break apart into redcoats and bluecoats to help get us in the mood of the day.
and dave said he would solo the national anthem around the circle including a spectacular vocal ending. can't wait.
see you tomorrow! 🇺🇸
Friday, July 1, 2016
small fri, small monday?
looks like another smaller friday count, but it is a holiday weekend. maybe some travels.
maybe everyone was at the early bird fireworks sale at watt road. doors open early, discounts and prizes, free giveaways...it was probably explosive!
or they were at the waffle house.
no matter. as our normal practice on a holiday weekend, i am calling for a count for monday morning. five confirms right now. reply over email and stand by for updates.
Monday, June 27, 2016
a better wednesday
i messed up monday. looks like enough were actually showing up on monday. but i have good news: wednesday will be better! more people, enough for games! so, it's on.
and as a bonus, games will be played in honor the of ben. show up for him. play hard for him. remember him.
if you are on twitter, use has tag #rememberben.
Sunday, June 26, 2016
sleep in tomorrow
looks like the count will be too low to attempt a meet up.
count for monday
who is in for tomorrow hoops? can i get a count?
Wednesday, June 22, 2016
just me and the dove
Monday, June 20, 2016
Thursday, June 16, 2016
i prefer heat over being cold. these days, i can get my sweat on just stepping outside.
that said, i do like a cold gym when working up a sweat. we have one. it's cold on the inside...except when we get some well matched teams for some good running.
hmm, i guess i meant the subject to say "hot days."
Tuesday, June 14, 2016
yesterday we had seven. almost eight. we needed just one more.
so, think we can get that tomorrow? i believe it's possible.
be part of the eight!
Sunday, June 12, 2016
we are close to the middle of june, which means the days will only be getting longer for about another week. then they start getting shorter again.
set your alarm to get up for hoops and see how light it really is at 5:40. you'll be amazed.
oh, and come over to the gym to play some hoops.
Thursday, June 9, 2016
back on the court
off wednesday. back friday. it's how we roll.
see you tomorrow.
Tuesday, June 7, 2016
no hoops wednesday
vbs week is here, and the gym is in use. we will not be playing wednesday but will return friday.
i guess that make it wednesday waffle house day!
Sunday, June 5, 2016
updated schedule for the upcoming week
i found out that we will be able to play monday and friday but not on wednesday. there is also a senior luncheon tomorrow at noon, so we will need to set up after games.
you get one day off this week. i think you know what that means: waffle house breakfast! call your friends.
Thursday, June 2, 2016
another full house tomorrow
Wednesday, June 1, 2016
Sunday, May 29, 2016
think we'll have enough
i believe we are good to go for hoops tomorrow. i know some of you will sleep in; but for those who don't, your court awaits.
same bat time.
Thursday, May 26, 2016
memorial day weekend
for some, it's long weekend. and as we always do, we play hoops... well, same as always.
i need to get a count for monday. i will check in the morning to make sure there is enough. if you are planning on playing monday, please let me know.
Tuesday, May 24, 2016
it was a nice count on monday with a few back now that school is out. i am hoping for that trend to continue tomorrow.
rest up. we'll play hard.

nate and ben
these are two guys who do very well in vegas at blackjack tables. they both work hard for what they've got but are willing to bank it on getting more. of course, these two have nothing to lose.
well played, guys. well played.
as for the rest of you, see you in the morning!
Sunday, May 8, 2016
hope you called your mom to say thanks and wish her a happy day. if you are reading this in the evening, you still have time to give her a call. if you are reading his in the morning, well....
oh, and your mom said to tell you to come play tomorrow morning because she heard we need the numbers. try not to disappoint mom.
Thursday, May 5, 2016
you may have wondered for a long time why we cage the balls instead of letting them roam free. well, we do that for their safety.
it's a cruel world out there. the cage is actually for their protection. many people tend not to keep an eye on them when they are out. sometimes they don't make back for the night. they are left out there...cold...alone...afraid. the cage gives them a sense of security.
the cage will be open tomorrow so they stretch and get some fresh(er) air. feel free to drop by and catch a glimpse. they won't mind.
Friday, April 29, 2016
seven on a friday? what?
Thursday, April 28, 2016
anyone ready for a weekend?
i know i sure am. i am going to first start it off with a morning game of hoops.
then i will ice my knees while i sit in a chair and work all of friday.
then i will recover more on saturday and sunday and return monday for more hoops.
sounds like a plan, eh?
Sunday, April 24, 2016
we need monday numbers to make the game work. can we get a decent crew? show up to cast your vote...and play.
Thursday, April 21, 2016
bring your A game
A is for april, by the way. bring that game while it's still april. i guess that works for august too, but it's april now.
anyway, hoops! A game! tomorrow!
Wednesday, April 20, 2016
Friday, April 15, 2016
Monday, April 11, 2016
a good monday
wow! monday morning was unexpected! good to see a few missing faces. and a full count for a full court is always good times.
we'll be doing the same thing wednesday. it'll be just like the old days.
Thursday, April 7, 2016
Tuesday, April 5, 2016
full court available
tomorrow morning! full court basketball!
bring your shoes and game!
all the slick moves! all the hot shots! all the exercise!
epic stories to tell your grandkids!
Sunday, April 3, 2016
you could watch it...or you could live it! tomorrow morning is live-the-dream time. set your alarms for wake-up-for-real-dreams and show up.
dreams. live it.
Sunday, March 27, 2016
is the madness over?
i don't know what your bracket might look like, but if there any frustration that needs to be taken out then we have a court for that.
tomorrow morning? say, 6:00?
Thursday, March 24, 2016
easter weekend hoops
Tuesday, March 22, 2016
Sunday, March 20, 2016
spring in your game
warm weather, right? maybe.
ready gym stands...ready...and stuff.
join us for full-court games. we'll have room.
Thursday, March 17, 2016
high point hump day
we had just more than ten on wednesday. exercise happened. it was good times!
tomorrow normally is high volume friday, but i have heard the usual suspects will be playing at an oddly scheduled open gym across town. that means possibly plenty of room in friday.
and if anyone wants more full court time than other (unnamed) places, feel free to join us!
see you in the morning!
Tuesday, March 15, 2016
give it a shot
ok, we have five counted for tomorrow. we still need one more, so i will show up and see who else can make it.
i will be there.
Monday, March 14, 2016
show of hands
okay, being spring break this week, i am calling for a show of digital hands of those who are interested in playing on wednesday. it's only fair to the few who showed this morning to see if it's worth it for them to make the effort.
so, email me back if you are a definite for wednesday morning. i will not take less than six affirmatives.
Sunday, March 13, 2016
we have about another week left of winter. but the season of college basketball is here. good thing the clock thing was last night instead of tonight.
hoops in the morning. need guys for teams. set alarms. be there.
Thursday, March 10, 2016
feels like spring
if that doesn't motivate you to play some hoops, then i don't know what would.
oh, another video...
Tuesday, March 8, 2016
thought there would be more
i thought we'd have a full crew on monday. even with a few of the cedar springs population, we still had room for full teams.
we try again tomorrow. of course, it's the same plan like we have every wendesday: open gym, play hoops.
so, see you there!
Sunday, March 6, 2016
fuller house this week
seems like cedar spring's missions conference has their gym occupied. that means enough this week for full court hoops.
and this is to tease you for coming out in the morning...and because nate asked:
Thursday, March 3, 2016
we need ten
can i get ten?
only need ten.
ok, ten it is.
see you in the morning.
just ten of you.
Tuesday, March 1, 2016
a better monday. even better wednesday?
will we get enough for wednesday?
monday was better number-wise. we got the full court treatment.
if you want some play actual court time, show up on these two days.
nate, proof checked post for typos this time. looks clear.
Sunday, February 28, 2016
more than just four
can we get ebony to AT LEAST play full court tomorrow? we'd really appreciate it.
Friday, February 26, 2016
low count week again
i know fridays usually have enough, but it was another low count week this week. feel free to come over on mondays and wednesdays. plenty of court time then too.
see you tomorrow.
Wednesday, February 24, 2016
Sunday, February 21, 2016
low nums; back to norms
we had some low numbers last week. i guess you guys took presidents day--or presidents week--more seriously than i imagined. can we get a few more on monday and wednesday? that's when we needed them.
Monday, February 15, 2016
Sunday, February 14, 2016
Saturday, February 13, 2016
weather coming tomorrow evening
stay tuned to the website and email list for gym status on monday morning's play. it looks like it might be dicey. i will update tomorrow evening.
Tuesday, February 9, 2016
i am going to plan on not seeing any snow in the morning so that i might be pleasantly surprised when there is lots.
it will be cold. the gym will be warm. and even if it's not, well run enough to make up for it.
sleep well. wake up on time!
Sunday, February 7, 2016
even if you upset over the broncos winning the superbowl, you can still come play some hoops tomorrow before the snow hits in the afternoon.
there will no commercials during our games.
Thursday, February 4, 2016

Tuesday, January 26, 2016
january always seems to fly by. we are almost at the end of the first month in 2016. it's okay. no one likes january anyway, right?
when we play some good games, the time seems to fly by then as well. that was monday for us. no reason tomorrow can't be the same.
Sunday, January 24, 2016
you can share yours tomorrow morning with the group as we meet to play some hoops. i hope you rationed your bread and milk.
see you in the cold morning.
Thursday, January 21, 2016
Tuesday, January 19, 2016
cold & snow
cold days are here. and we might get snow.
weather advisory has the whole winter party starting around 7:00. i think we could probably stay ahead of the snow at our normal time.
i will be there in the morning.
Sunday, January 17, 2016
NO hoops on monday (mlk day)
i know i said hoops tomorrow morning, but i am sick, and there is no one else to open the gym.
sorry for the late notice, but please pass the word along as best as you can.
so, again, NO hoops on monday, january 18. we'll resume on wednesday again.
Thursday, January 14, 2016
scores and scores
4 - 4 : "The golf score" (FOOOOREs!) or "The Jeep Score" (4 x 4) or "The Liberty and Justice score" (with liberty and justice "4 all")
5 - 0 : "The Hawaiian score"
7 - 7 : "7 up, the world's most refreshing score"
7 - 11 : "The slurpie score"
8 - 8 : "The buffet score" (What did the man do at the buffet? He "8 up")
9 - 5 : "The Dolly Parton score"
Sunday, January 10, 2016
cold weather, warm gym
it might be cold outside, but i can assure you of a warm gym tomorrow morning. even if it is a bit cooler than normal, you will generate your own heat when we start playing 3-on-3 full court. of course, i am hoping for more than just six showing up. but that's up to you.
we'll see in the morning.
Thursday, January 7, 2016
Tuesday, January 5, 2016
a good start
Sunday, January 3, 2016
are you guys ready to start up this year? we are back on the court tomorrow morning to begin working off all that holiday eating.
here's a goodbye of 2015: https://youtu.be/v38W2r_A1Ns
