I hope you and your family enjoyed a Merry Christmas. As you may have noticed, I have not updated my blog for a while. I have a good reason: I have been reffing a lot of basketball in the past month. The season has gone well. Before a tournament game this afternoon between two out-of-state schools, I had three one-point games in a row (one of which went to overtime) this week. I love close games.
I have also had a coach’s ejection, witnessed a BasketCase that was just relentless yelling at his own team’s players (the crowd jeered him for his 20-second tirade at his own team, he could have used a copy of BasketCases) and was evaluated during a holiday tournament game (we’ll see how the report comes out).
With my busy high school and college schedule, I have only done a couple of youth basketball tournaments and won’t work any in January. I just received a nice e-mail from a college friend with a couple of youth basketball-aged sons who loved BasketCases. I hope you are enjoying the season. And have a wonderful new year.
