They’re playing basketball. We love that basketball.

Today, my oldest son is playing for the city league basketball championship.
They’re playing the team that they team they beat by 1 point. At the buzzer
He’s played in the city league since he was 3 years old and this is the first time he’s been on a winning team. This is the first time that he’s ever made it to the championship. This is the first time that he has a team that really knows how to play basketball.
And it just so happens to be the first year that PigHunter has coached his team.
The exitement doesn’t end there, folks. PigHunter is also coaching Ethan’s team and at 8 this morning, he has a playoff game and if he wins that game, he will also play for city championship this afternoon. (Different divisions.)
We’re all so excited and I’m so damn proud of all 3 of my boys. Last weekend, they won FOUR games to get to this point.
I didn’t sleep much last night because of nerves and I know I don’t need to tell you about The Gas.
I just hope I’m able to control my nerves and um, not get kicked out of either of their games. I’ve developed a “new skill” when it comes to their basketball games. It’s called “Taking a Walk” instead of “Screaming at the Refs (and Sometimes the Parents.) It’s worked beautifully this year, as I’ve not even got a warning to shut my trap from the refs.
Both of my boys want to win this really bad, so as their mom, I want it for them.
Go Lakers! Go Magic!
GO COACH PIGHUNTER!(And also Coach Kevin! Because he’s not coaching alone, he’s co-coaching with a friend.)
Ethan lost the first game and his chance at the championship by TWO flippin’ points. He did, however, win his 2nd game by almost 30 and took 3rd place.

Third Place

Andrew’s game is at 3:30 and this is for The Championship, Y’all.

    How’d it turn out? Huh, huh? Bossy is on pins and needles. Oh wait – those are the springs coming through her desk chair.

    Now that song is stuck in my head “basketball is my favorite sport, I like the way they dribble up and down the court…”

    *taking a walk* is a good idea.
    My version? I bring a book. “READ READ READ” I tell myself. And I put my face into that novel and make myself look at the words over and over again.
    Thank God I had a book with me at the last baseball game of the season last year. You know… the one where the umpire was (literally) throwing the game in the other teams favor, and hell broke loose and the umpire stormed off the field and LEFT IN HIS CAR IN THE MIDDLE OF THE GAME… and they had to call in an emergency umpire….
    … that would be the season that ruined baseball forever for my son (who was throwing baseballs over the double garage at age 3 years old…) and now at 14 never wants to play baseball again.
    Yes… bringing a book to sporting events works for me.
