The Sports Court Report

So...this post is for Tyler, who pretty much spent most of his free time during his high school days playing basketball with his football buddies on the sports court. Tyler's "band of brothers" would gather on the weekends and play ball for hours and hours. Large crowds of boys would descend upon the court once they saw the sports court lights go on. The lights could be seen from Eureka Road and was the signal that it was time to play "dunkball." We have often referred to it as "Tyler's sport court" but since Tyler left home, it has been rather quiet out on the court. Until now...
Unfortunately, Tyler, I have to report that this is what took place on your sports court on Saturday night. I know...it's kind of embarrassing! But what did you expect from your musically talented sister, Ashley, who is taking student government this semester and put in charge of choreographing the Senior dance for the First Day of School rally? Really. The worst part was there were 3 GBHS basketball players out there on the court dancing that night instead of practicing their jump shot and playing "dunkball!"
If it's any consulation, the Seniors beat the Juniors at the rally yesterday! It was the first time that Ashley's class has shown any school spirit and won a class competition. I think it all had something to do with the sports court:)!

Ashley and her friend Matt, practicing their dance moves.

If you look closely, you will notice that the net has strangely disappeared. Hmmmm?!

Way to go Ashley! I bet that was the most fun rally ever! What a feeling to choreograph, teach and see it win! WOW!

That's an interesting story about the court. The dancing looks cool. More of that dancing and those calves will definitely have more muscle on them.
