Coaching 8B Basketball

Oh, woe is me, coaching 8th grade girls hoops, blah, blah, blah (there, for those of you who want to skip, you just got a good summary of this entry).................................But I got a couple stories: 1) girl starts, literally, walking during a practice scrimmage "I am tired" I say, "well, I guess we need to run more to get you in shape" response, "Not tired as in out of breath, tired as in sleepy." Um, OK... 2) a girl had a birthday the other day so I asked her what she got -- "mostly cash" -- my reply "oh bring some of that to the tourney, I could use some cash." (straight face) "What? I am not giving you my birthday cash!" (um, hey, only kidding there...) "Did you get any non-cash items?" Yes, I got a tote bag for my makeup from (name of lingerie store); that's a place that you probably don't know anything about but it is a nice place. "Yeah, never heard of that." "I didn't think you would...".............................................................................................................So, summary -- I am a nerd whose sarcasm isn't apparent, and who doesn't know very basic things about national chain stores; and I have players who need a nap while playing hoops...........I am pumped up for this weekend's tourney like you can't believe!!
