The Haps on Hoops - De File
Does Collecting Make You Feel Dirty?
The Haps on Hoops
Basketball is an excellent form of exercise, particularly the sort of marathon games of one-on-one that I played this afternoon. I inevitably end up bruised, but better for it. Today my balky knee was relatively compliant. And my crossover and behind-the-back dribbles were working well. If only I could drive more effectively on the right side of the lane. Or make a few more of those makeable shots I always seem to miss. Anyway, I'm getting close to the shape I need to be in to challenge lithe young men -- or women -- to a game, so let me know if you're interested.

Lisa's youngerst has been playing a lot and I keep meaning to join him. My shot is for shit these days, so I wouldn't be a worthy opponent.
I am pretty damned lithe though, for a 2X4.

I appreciate your basketball entries!

Indeed, there is hoops as well as baseball in Heaven.

Thanks. It's nice to know someone who isn't skipping over them. Do you play?

I do play! I imagine our games are similar as slashing forwards, but I'm a streaky shooter who can shoot the three and like the mid-range post, where I often shoot a fallaway J.

Footwork is my favorite aspect of the game. I believe that Steve Nash is setting a new standard for off-hand passing that may never be broken. I saw him toss a left-handed laser along the baseline for an easy three.

I'm pretty alright at hoops - definitly best on the break in a fullcourt situation - and dont play as much as I'd like. I'll be around next friday and tomorrow (sat) as well and would be availible for hoops or any sort of post-college de-briefing.

Next Friday, I hope. Saturday -- tomorrow -- won't work. Send me an e-mail, eh?

Was JP your adversary again? I'm assuming so, because of the bruises and all.

I think I might test the ankle next Friday. I haven't gone in more than a month. Any chance I'll see you out there?

This Friday I can't. But next Friday I probably could. Yes, JP was the adversary. He has been getting better. And also more ruthless!
