Basketball

So, about 16 years ago I started to play basketball. I was on the freshman team, and of course the tallest. But not terribly coordinated. I played all four years of high school. I thought I would liven up this post with a few pictures from a long time ago.
There I am in all my basketball glory. And good old Charter Oak High School.


This is me my senior year. What is really sad is I still have those shoes. They have a little pump in them. I need to send them to one of those recycling shoes places, where they grind them up for use for the really nice tracks for schools.
Well, they are having a tournament for all age groups at church this weekend. There is a small group of women (including me) that have been getting together at a neighborhood center (I'll explain that one later) to shoot around and get used to playing basketball. We had a little "practice" this morning, and it was interesting. The good thing: these women know the rules and mostly understand the game. The bad thing: one of them can get really mean. So, we'll see how it goes. It was great cardio for me as I haven't played any basketball for years. I still remember a lot of stuff, and I can still do what I was trained to do, and it was actually kind of fun. If I can get anyone to take pictures this weekend I will post them. Even if I look retarded in them. And I'm sure I'll have some interesting stories....

I concur with Stephanie 100%. Now how come I'm even older than that and I don't behave like a dignified mother most of the time?
