Basketball...

Landon's game this morning was... interesting! We got to the gym, the game was supposed to start at 11, still at 11:15 they hadn't started, which would have caused a real problem for us as we had decided to take one vehicle, which would give us just enough time to grab McDonalds before Bailey's soccer game and get her there on time. I was getting concerned b/c 11:15 just wasn't going to work with my schedule! Finally the game got started though, probably 11:20. At this point I've noticed it's a bit cold in the gym, but nothing terrible by any means. I did put my coat on though. Second quarter starts... starts off fine (oh, did I mention yet that there was NO scoreboard, therfore we couldn't see the clock either, kind of annoying, but I guess they had had problems with it in the previous games), then the power goes out... lights out. Good thing there were large windows in the gym, but I swear it dropped 10 degrees in 3 minutes... BRRRRRR! The boys continued playing, it wasn't like you couldn't see, it was just very dim. After the second quarter was done, they did call the game though, saying it was to much of a hazard w/o lights. Whatever... that got us out on time to grab lunch and still make it to Bailey's game with plenty of time to spare! Yeah!

So, anyway, his game for next Saturday is being rescheduled (due to lack of players) to Thursday at 7pm, same place!

Shoot! Thursday nights would work out so great to come see one of Landon's game (grad class on Saturdays, but this week I'm having dinner with some students and taking them to see Grease the musical. Let me know if that ever happens again!
