I got a little righteous in The Regular Game yesterday. First it was about Chip putting his hand in my back on rebounds and moving when he set picks. Then it was about players who were sitting out shooting while we were trying to play a game. And, of course, there was everybody’s favorite, the anti-pick-on-the-ball…
One player, whom has never quite bought into our philosophy (and yet doesn’t eschew us to play with the big boys…), snidely remarked, “He’ll make a player out of you, yet, Chip.” As if I was being pedantic. (Shocking. I know…) Really, all I was doing was enforcing our agreed upon rules. I really don’t give a fuck what Chip does with his game, unless, of course, it’s against the rules and/or dangerous. (I also later blocked the other player’s shot into the wall…)
We had a good turnout, with 16 at one time. But everyone got enough of a run, I think. I sat out extra, since I had played the day before in The Professors Game.
We had a decent run in The Professors Game on Saturday, with my team rallying to win the last two games to bring the day’s series to a 3 to 3 tie. All the games were close. I guess that the highlight for me was the second game, when I score our last 8 points on 2 3’s and mid-range jumper to bring us from behind for the win.
