finishing up

we'll conclude the year 2016 with one more morning of basketball. it's been quite the year, eh? and 2017 is a prime number, if you care about such things.

no matter. we play tomorrow!

Tuesday, December 27, 2016

midweek hoops

anyone who wants a full court morning is welcome to come and join us tomorrow morning. i am confident that we will have the numbers to play full court the whole time.

alarm is set. i will be ready.

Sunday, December 25, 2016

merry christmas!

i hope your day is merry as you celebrate the Hope of the salvation in Christ's birth (isaiah 9:6, luke 2:11).

we are playing tomorrow morning same time as usual. i heard that cedar springs is closed which means a larger attendance than normal for a monday.

have a good christmas!

Thursday, December 22, 2016

christmas eve eve

yes, we are back on the court tomorrow. tell your friends. 

Tuesday, December 20, 2016

winter time

as we start the winter season, who knows how much snow we'll get which will keep us from hoops. so, keep that in mind when considering your basketball alarm. set it now in case you might miss a day in the future.

we play wednesday and friday.

Sunday, December 18, 2016

closing in on christmas

as we are in our final week before christmas, we are staying strong to the cause. court is back in operation tomorrow morning, although i might need a hand with a bit of moving things around in the morning. if you can get there a little earlier, i could use some assistance.

ok. tomorrow. see you!

Thursday, December 15, 2016

reminder: no hoops in the morning

gym is unavailable tomorrow morning for hoops. we get a chance to hit the waffle house for festive christmas experience.

we'll meet next friday.

Tuesday, December 13, 2016

gym unavailable on friday this week

as stated already, we play tomorrow (wednesday), but the gym is unavailable on friday, december 16. maybe hit the waffle house and do a little christmas shopping before work.

need some players tomorrow

we'll need a few players tomorrow to make up some good games. set your alarms and make it a christmas miracle by showing up to play some hoops!

see you in the morning.

Sunday, December 11, 2016

normal monday...yet

keep in mind that isaac needs prayer for his future. also continue to pray for allen's newborn. both are in God's hands. ASK for good things. expect His best. He gives the best.

hoops at normal time tomorrow. hope to see any who can make it.

Thursday, December 8, 2016

congrats, allen

as we are running our games of basketball, allen and his wife will be welcoming a new member of their family into this world. 

we'll see you next week, allen. the rest of you: we'll see you in the morning.

Sunday, December 4, 2016

warm up with hoops

it's probably going to be cold in your house tomorrow morning. might as well come and exercise to warm up for the day. if you increase your metabolism, your core can keep you warm.

come tomorrow. play hoops. stay warm.

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

thanksgiving hoops

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


where are you?

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

guaranteed running

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

closing in

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.

tomorrow then!

Friday, November 11, 2016

weather with isaac

we've been praying for isaac, jeff's son, for a few months now. if you have never met him, you can get a good idea of what he is like by watching this video from this morning's WATE weather forecast report:

good job, isaac! trent magill needs to watch his back!

Thursday, November 10, 2016

welcome weekend

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

aftermath hoops

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

pre-election hoops

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! πŸ€

Thursday, November 3, 2016

pre-weekend hoops

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


it's starting to feel like fall out there, at least in the mornings. i don't know if that has anything to do with basketball, but whatevs. come play tomorrow morning anyway.

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...

here was how hoops went last friday:

see you tomorrow!

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

come play hoops!

it's 'murican!

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

if you were off on monday, then your work week is short. but our hoops week isn't short. it's full strength. tomorrow would be a good day to show up. it really would.

i do have a video from yesterday. i'll post it soon.

Saturday, September 3, 2016

labor play

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

we're kicking off september with some hoops tomorrow morning. fall is a few weeks away and although everyone around here thinks it's football season, we know which sport is really the best. (hint: it's the one you can play three days a week year round.)

come join the extravaganza in the morning!

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


back on the newly finished basketball court tomorrow. when i walked in wednesday, it still had that new-court smell.

we are glad to have it, but we need players to make it work.

i'll see you in the morning.

Tuesday, August 23, 2016

great monday

man, those games on monday were out of control!

special shouts to "state" nate for those crazy shots. totes amaze!

also, dave "the dove"...with all the driving you did, i thought you had miss daisy in the back seat. outstanding.

looking forward to good times on wednesday!

Sunday, August 21, 2016


i hope your eyes have adjusted to the gym floor brightness. you can get some more court time this week starting tomorrow.

see you!

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.

see you!

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!

this pic does not provide the same effect as actually seeing it in person...

Sunday, August 14, 2016

back tomorrow

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

we are still out this week. enjoy sleeping in!


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


we do not have hoops this week or next.

that does mean you can't still travel to the waffle house for breakfast.

happy vacation!

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

Thursday, July 28, 2016

five, seven,...nine?

not fibonacci. just a simple sequence?

we'll probably have more than that.

probably eleven.

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.

Monday, July 25, 2016


only five of us.

Thursday, July 21, 2016

nines so far

how many tomorrow? we have had nines this week--wait! louis came later on wednesday and put us at the perfect ten mark. (thanks, louis!)

does that mean eleven tomorrow? will that hold the pattern for the week?

we shall soon see.

Tuesday, July 19, 2016

nine monday; ten tomorrow

can it happen?

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

independent hoops

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! πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

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 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.

happy friday!

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.

sleep in...



count for monday

who is in for tomorrow hoops? can i get a count?

Wednesday, June 22, 2016

just me and the dove

no one else wants to play full-court hoops on an empty court?

are you sure?

Monday, June 20, 2016

where is everyone?

we need players! head over! at least one more!

Thursday, June 16, 2016

hots dogs

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

almost there

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

post-vbs week

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

memorial day had a big number, while wednesday had returned to a fraction of that monday crowd. friday will be the the second big number day this week. i'm planning for some serious running (as long as my knee can handle it).

just a reminder that this is an exercise based event. no scouts, no money, no trophies. it's always just a game. anything other than that can be taken elsewhere.

Wednesday, June 1, 2016

could use one more

only seven. anyone?

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

good monday

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.

Thursday, May 19, 2016

hard week

all the full court running has made this a rough week. if i has all the energy i should have had, i might have done better on my exercise numbers.

we ask know there will be plenty tomorrow morning. but it won't be as bad as the other two days.

Tuesday, May 17, 2016

better wednesday

thanks to all the guys who showed up on monday. it was quite the workout, playing as much as we did. (i just wish i had been more awake.)

we can do it all again tomorrow morning, save maybe a few moments. i might even have more energy to play better than i did.

nate, sorry about your face.

hmm, that came out sorta junior high.

Monday, May 16, 2016

how many?

here i am, driving to hoops, wondering if there will be numbers today to play or just me and eventually a bike.

don't leave me hanging! don't leave a man behind!

Wednesday, May 11, 2016


no one here at 6:00. going home to ride the bike.

we'll try friday.

Tuesday, May 10, 2016

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

post-mom's day

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?

if you are awake and reading this before 7:00, there is still time for you to be number eight.

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

numbers game

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!

and stuff.

Wednesday, April 20, 2016

time for hoops!

cage is open. that cage. hoops is on!

Friday, April 15, 2016


check out the mug on this guy!

he's back. his wife knows he's here. don't damage him! (that goes for dave as much as anyone else.)

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

cold snap

tomorrow is going to be chilly. our cold snap for the weekend will hopefully be the last leftover of winter spilling into spring.

the good news is that you might not ens up sweating no matter how hard you run.

run hard tomorrow!

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

championship time

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

are we playing on good friday?


we are on a normal operating schedule. everything is good to go for tomorrow.

also, west park baptist has a good friday service tomorrow evening, march 25, at 7:00p, for anyone interested. we also have three sunday morning services (8:00a, 9:30a, 11:00a) as well as a saturday evening service at 5:00p (which matches the sunday morning services).

consider yourself officially invited to these. i prefer the term "resurrection sunday" as it is a better reminder of what the weekend highlights.

see you guys somewhere this weekend!

ps: jeff and mike, i misspoke about cedar springs playing on fridays. i meant that WE are open on fridays. they remain closed on fridays. sorry. brain needed coffee to function.

Tuesday, March 22, 2016

who's in?

we have a full court.

we have an open time.

we have lights and equipment to play.

all we need are teams. it's a shame all of that has to go to waste. 

who's in?

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

spring madness

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

me and the gym

it's just us this morning...

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


so, here's the deal: it's raining ice right now. the roads are getting covered as i type. it is slick.

what i am going to do is wait till 6:00. if no one shows by 6:00 money, then i will lock it up and head home. if anyone ventures out, we'll decide what to do.

seems clear

looks like we'll be playing no problem tomorrow. we'll plan on that.

if things are different in the morning, i'll send another update. if you don't hear otherwise, assume it's all good.

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.

cold again

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!

super monday

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.

less soggy

i think we got all the water wiped up in the gym from wednesday. on the plus side, some of the floor got a good mopping.

it'll be good to have no hazard spots to interfere with our shooting. see you in the morning.

Tuesday, February 2, 2016


even though the chipmunk saw his shadow indicating summer vacation will be here next week, we still have six weeks of winter.

the basketball saw its shadow meaning all the weeks of hoops, tomorrow included. see you in the morning.

ending strong

january is over. tomorrow is the last day in january 2016 that we'll be playing hoops. i think we should finish strong.

doors open at the usual time tomorrow. this is your chance.

Tuesday, January 26, 2016

quick month

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.

see you!

survival stories

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


round two of the white stuff falls on friday. but before we see that happen, we'll play some ball.

stay warm, be careful, and see you in the morning.

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.

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.

scores and scores

i was telling someone at work today about trent's score nicknames. i thought i had it written down on the site, but i had to go back through my email to find it. since his original list in june 2014, several more have been added. here they are:

2 - 4 : "The lumber score" (2x4)
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"
9 - 11 : "The Never Forget score"
10 - 4 : "The good buddy score"

i can't help but think there are more of them. i'm sure trent can chime in with the missing ones. hope you get well soon, buddy!

we are playing on monday, if you were wondering. and we'll be playing tomorrow too!

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


you will either be on the court or at this place tomorrow morning. at least that's how i imagine it will be. i mean, who can resist the house of waffles?

that's what i thought. see you then.

a good start

monday's hoops 2016 kickoff morning was full of running. missing friday made the running harder.

here is where i would normally reference resolutions and stuff. but i'm not going to do that. we're just going to assume that if you are not with us on the court, you are at a waffle house somewhere. enjoy!

we'll see how it all unfolds tomorrow.

Sunday, January 3, 2016

hello, 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:
