9 men showed up at the Brave for Midriff’s birthday bash basketball Q. We’re not just going to throw in a basketball for a few exercises, we’re going to play the game
A few stretches in the parking lot while we wait for Right Turn to make his turn into the lot. Mosey down Community House to the British International School. Nice full court tucked behind the actual gym. Match up for rock-paper-scissors. Losers on one side = shirts, winners on the other = skins. Team skins is Wingman, Wild Turkey, Sweetwater and YHC. Team shirts is War Eagle, Right Turn, Cold Cuts, Picasso and Frehley’s. After about 2 possessions, realize this court is way too dark and need to find a better location. Mosey to other side of the school to play half-court on single hoop with only slightly better lighting. Team Skins nearly takes Game 1, but Team Shirts makes a vicious run to take the first game 7-6. Burpees and suicides after each game. Game 2 is a decisive win for Team Skins, taking it 7-1. Mosey back to launch, arriving a minute late.
I’ve always wanted to launch a basketball workout in the heart of Ballantyne. Is there enough demand for it? Does anyone have access to the full court in the BCC neighborhood? Are there any lighted courts to use in the gloom? Hit me up if you want to help make this dream a reality.
