Bubs’ school basketball team won the city elementary school championship tonight. They were undefeated all year, and tonight’s win was against another undefeated team, one his best friend happens to be on.
The game was played at a local high school, home of the “Spartans.” Thus the artistic renderings of muscled legs and grappling in the background.
We’d had low expectations for this team initially, because some key players from last year moved on to middle school. Then two more, twins, moved to Guam. But this “boys” team with 2 girls battled their way to the top.
Except when he was describing the pastrami he smoked last weekend, this was the most joy I’ve ever seen Coach G express.
