Basketball is a limited contact sport (Thumbs Up didn’t understand this) played on a rectangular court.  While most oftern played as a team sport with five players on each side, three-on-three, two-on-two, one-on-one, and even four-on-four (like this morning) competitions are also common.  The objective is to shoot a ball through a hoop 18 inches (46 cm) in diamater and 10 feet (3.048 m) high that is mounted to a backboard at each end of the court.  (this was a somewhat difficult task for Tailpipe).  The game was invented in 1891 by Dr. James Naismith.

Conditions:  Indoor, so they were perfect

From this point, we split into groups of 3-on-3 and 4-on-4 and played pick-up games of hoops for the next 25 minutes until the clock expired.

Not all games were witnessed but a few comments led YHC to believe Wiggles, Double Fault, Strut, Whisper, Julep and Teacher’s Pet have some game.  Fun had bad all and thank to Lt. Dan for making it all possible.

Mosey back to Shovel Flag.  Many were spotted grabbing some water at the RBHS water fountains.  Tough morning for the Crypt boys this morning.  All had a blast, I think.

Blindside was back and he updated us on the positive progression of his daughter and then spoke about how thankful he was for each F3Lex brother that checked in on him and his family.  It was great to see you out there today, Blindside and we are all super excited to hear the positive updates.

Great work this morning, dudes.  Merry Christmas!
