Took in my first high school basketball this season during my travels--watching my alma mater win two (boys and girls) from a nearby rival. Every season when I start watching basketball closely again I remember what a love I have developed for this simple game of putting a ball through a hoop. The love affair is especially renewed by seeing a game live, even at the HS level. To see the strategy, the physicality, the style of the game up close is to remember.
More hoops photos will follow, and it will be fun right to the end.
P.S. My alma mater's boys team had not lost a game as of Friday.
I am a New Yorker by birth, and have been a life long Giants, Jets and Mets fan. (I never could really get into rooting for the Yankees.) I moved to Vermont for my high school years. I lived in the Philadelphia area for several years. Then I returned to Vermont to live. Now, I have been in Kansas City for twenty years. I am a Royals and Chiefs fan. I'm a graduate of the University of Vermont. My tax dollars go to MU, but I am an all around fan of our area Big 12 colleges. I love living in a town with a vibrant sports scene, where sports news gets more comments than any other news. I am passionate but thoughtful. I don't call names. However, if someone needs a butt kicking, I'll give it. So, that's where I'm coming from.
