nate and danny?

since we didn't see nate on his normal monday visit, will we get a wednesday replacement? if we get danny back tomorrow along with monday's crew, it could be some decent basketball.

midsection -
  n. 1. the part of the body between the chest and the legs.
      2. the time between thanksgiving and christmas where playing hoops can fix one problem and prepare for another (i.e. the changed circumference of definition 1).

and thus we begin. confections are a highlight of this season, so it will be a struggle. if you counter it with pushing yourself hard, you can win this year.

reminder: no hoops in the morning

i hope your turkey day was a thank-filled day.

big wednesday games

tomorrow is the last day this week we play. turkey day is this thursday, so get your exercise on now. i don't think we'll be hurting for players in the morning.

remember: friday is black friday shopping/waffle house day. we don't play.

countdown to turkey

turkey will be on table this week. you know naps will follow turkey. better get your game on tomorrow and wednesday to prepare for turkey.

see you in the morning, turkey! 🦃

Thursday, November 16, 2017

just think... week by this time, turkey will be consumed. and then you'll be ready to drive your family to all those black friday events.

speaking of which, we are NOT playing next friday, november 24. we WILL play friday, december 1. of course, we will also play november 20, 22, 27, and 29. those are mondays and wednesdays.

additional note: on december 1 and december 3, it's christmas at west park! two nights only! you guys are invited to hear me sing as well as see jeff scott, former hoops player, play guitar and sing. (shameless plug for my niece, who will be rap-tap-tapping it up on the snare-featured rendition of "the little drummer boy." she's very talented!)

strong monday, strong wednesday

i guess that extra hour of sleep helped at least me on monday. i felt like i played on friday. in fact, i might have overdone it with respect to my knee.

i've given it some rest time, so i plan on playing strong tomorrow short of doing any damage which might preclude me from ever playing again. (i don't think it's that bad.)

since i woke up early today feeling sufficiently rested, i am hoping this trend lasts all week. i need a crew to keep me moving. i'm expecting you guys tomorrow. let's do this!

darker before the dawn?

it might be. we have only about 37 more days before days start getting longer again. (i always look forward to when that starts.)

an extra hour of sleep should make getting up tomorrow easy. and here's a recap from friday...

playing tomorrow

we are back on the hardwood tomorrow after an impromptu sabbatical last week. bring your A game.

we had a new player show up on wednesday. welcome dave! (not that dave, or that one either.) we got in some much needed exercise. turns out, he has some basketball skill.

see you guys tomorrow.
