Gut Rumbles

I saw Quinton's first basketball game of the season tonight. His team lost a thriller, 16-15, with the game going right down to the wire. My boy hustled his ass off all over the court.

Quinton can't shoot. He doesn't dribble very well. His passing is woeful. His rebounding sucks. His defense is marginal. Other than those minor faults, he played a good game.

Hell, the kids had fun and so did I. That's all that really matters at that age.


Sounds like fun. Glad you got an invite :)

The important thing is that he had fun. He'll improve with some practice and experience. It's good that you were there for support, too. Basketball is a good game. I played through high school and into college. Keep it fun.

Must be in the air. I watched my boy play ball last night to. They went down in the end, but it wasn't for lack of trying, or hustlin.

I believe the coach could use a "clock management" class...
