Basketball

Saturday
Last Saturday we had two basketball games to attend. The first was one for our Grandson, Zachary. I made a little video clip of part of his game. Here’s the short clip….
(It only lasts a tad over 1 1/2 minutes)


In this picture Zachary is throwing the ball in bounds to one of his team mates.

Zachary’s on the bench getting a rest, and telling the coach something.

Our second game was to watch Kara play. Her team is the Indian Springs Redskins and they played the Pirates of Sullivan Gardens. It was a close and exciting game, but the redskins lost. We enjoy all the games win or lose.


Kara’s in the back court.

One of Kara’s main responsibilities is to get the ball in bounds. The coach will call a play and Kara will yell, “BREAK!”

One of Kara’s team mates is shooting a free throw.  Kara’s lined up in hopes of getting a rebound if she misses.

Joke of the Day

The old man had died. A wonderful funeral was in progress and the country preacher talked at length of the good traits of the deceased, what an honest man he was, and what a loving husband and kind father he was.

Finally, the widow leaned over and whispered to one of her children, "Go up there and take a look in the coffin and see if that's your pa."

Jim, great video. My 8 year old is playing BB too.
I haven't seen him play yet, only practice. Zach dribbles nice and I loved the lay up.
Isn't it great having grandchildren?
