Basketball was never my sport. (Oh sure… what is my sport, you ask? Good question! But it’s not basketball!) I remember shooting hoops in gym class, and that was ok, but I never quite got the hang of that whole “dribbling” thing. And other than watching trick shot highlights, I’ve never found professional basketball worth my attention.
So when Jess’ daughter joined a basketball team and I found myself in Fredericton for a tournament, I wasn’t sure what to expect. It was the first time that we’d all gone somewhere in the new Kia Sorento. That optional 7 person seating sure comes in handy!
But ya know what? It was a great weekend! I learned a lot about the game, and it wasn’t boring like I had always figured it would be. I learned a little more about the rules, and gained more of an appreciation for the game as a whole. There was a ton of talent on display. Those girls are good!
So this may have been my first basketball tournament, but I know it will not be my last. Next time though… separate hotel rooms for the children! I’ve never before had security come to my door because of the noise. Damn troublemaker kids! 🙂
