Feeling Good!

This might sound like a repeat of my last post but it isn't.  Last week, I was asked to fill in for a frosh-soph boys basketball game.  Because of some personal things, I hadn't work much in the past few months.  But since the game fit my schedule relatively well, I took the game.

I was working with a relatively new partner too but we hit it off.  I told him that our goal was just to have fun on the court and we did just that.  The home team took an early lead but stumbled in the second half.  The visiting team hit a three point buzzer beater to tie the game and send it to overtime.  The visiting team ended up winning 44-42.

I was surprised that I was relatively sharp on the court.  I was a little out of shape but the tempo of the game wasn't so great that I couldn't keep up.  Nothing major happened that was worth discussing.  My partner and I were on the same page and worked well together.

I will say that I discussed the situation where the home team might foul the visiting team before they shot the game tying three pointer.  I told my partner that if a foul was coming, he'd better get it fast before the shooter got into the act.  Alas, the home team didn't foul and they had a chance to.

All in all, I'm not going to work too many games this year in high school but at least I had a fun one!
