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

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.

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:
