Today was the first day of the be-annual Colby Boys Alumni basketball tournament. Strangely, this was the first time I have ever attended. I took Jaden with me this morning to watch my beloved class of 1996. They got beat pretty handily by the combined team from 88/89. It wasn’t even close.
Jaden had fun hanging out with Savana. After watching my team lose, I watched some of my cousin’s games.
Dan graduated in 1997. I loved seeing his new wife, Maggy. She is so much fun.
I watched my cousin, Nate (1993) take on my team and they beat us pretty well. We held tight for a while, but we just couldn’t pull out a win.
My cousin Jason (1998) won their first game, but then got upset by the 11 seed.
I didn’t go to the consolation games tonight, but I’ll go back tomorrow after church to watch some more games. It was a lot of fun to see people I haven’t seen in forever. And to see some of my friends’ parents and catch up on what everyone has been doing the past 14 years. I can’t believe it has been that long. Is is wrong that I had to check the program frequently because I didn’t recognize a lot of the guys?!?
Basically, watching all that basketball has made me want to lace up my shoes and play again. I have no ambitions of grandeur, but it would be so much fun to pound around under the hoop. I miss it.
