Basketball

The girls season ended, "not with a bang, but a whimper," losing three games we should have won, and finishing the season 2-7. This represents a two-win improvement since last year, but we never gelled, never found the groove.

Now the boys have started, and I gotta tell you, we're huge. Not big hulking types, but just size all over the court. Big shoulders, strong arms, good height, nice speed. There's a couple players who look like they score, a few more who understand the game, and if we hadn't got placed in the division of death, I'd be thinking playoffs. That said, I'm in that mode right now where I go home, turn on the stereo, and start diagramming offense plays and defensive alignments, and substitution patterns -- never mind the essays, and quizzes, and classwork. During class I'm thinking about practice, and I know I've meticulously planned out a week of practices far better than my week of literacy instruction.

If I'm barely getting the job done, it makes you wonder about the kids.

Some folks said they've had problems commenting. I think it's a glitch. I surely did not put any restrictions up.

That's "losing" not "loosing."
