the GFJAA Knights wrap up their season

yesterday, in what was easily the most exciting game they played all year, the Knights pushed their opponents to the wire on both ends of the floor- a display of basketball so gutsy that words strain to to describe it. though they played outstandingly, they managed to lose a squeaker in regulation by a final score of 15-12. obviously the shooting on both sides of the ball was lackluster at best. our own #37, Loren, went 1-1 on the afternoon, sinking his only attempt, and contributing 1 of only 6 baskets scored by the Knights in the entire 40 minutes. the Knights' outstanding hustle on defense kept them in the game right up to the last minute of play. it was a fantastic game, easily the most fun of the year for the crowd in the stands, and an unprecedented effort on the part of everyone on the team. special thanks to Mom & Dad for comin' out to cheer on m'boy. thanks also to Coach Sally and Coach Bill for their efforts this year.

this reporter warmed up Loren, then Loren and Taylor, then Loren and Taylor and Bubba, then Loren and Taylor and Bubba and Tyler, before finally conceding that they'd had enough and leaving them to finish their pre-game routine as they might. i taped a large portion of the game, but the videotape and camera battery were vying for which one would quit first; in the end the battery was victorious by a nose. i did however manage to record the majority of Loren's playing time. basketball pictures came back this afternoon also, and Loren's was good, but they put my name on his picture instead of his. i'll be looking to see if it was their mistake or mine, and scanning and reprinting the pictures for Loren's mom.

Loren and I went to dinner with my folks after the game- thanks guys, that was wonderful. afterwards i ran Loren back to his mom's. this afternoon Loren's going to take part in the GFJAA shoot-out, here's crossing my fingers he acquits himself well :)

enough for me for now, time to roll. onward to soccer season Loren!
