COACHING BIG BOYS BASKETBALL TEAM...SURPRISING PATIENCE BY ME!
Monday the 25th of October was the first day of basketball practice for my 3 year old. November 1st was the first game and the hype was well worth the wait. The season has been pretty amazing so far. Our team roster boasts only 7 players but players they are. Most of the kids are 4 yr olds but boy can they ball...kind of. We have one boy who can dunk(on a 4 ft rim)and twins that are lights out shooters. Big Boy is all hustler, leading the team in steals. With an attention span of about 3-4 minutes, we sub in and out like Joe Madden subs his pitchers. No idea of the score, I chalk it up as a win because it's so fun watching these guys wander, cry, and ask for their parents and play a little basketball. I surprised myself with the amount of patience I have coaching someone else's kid, and look forward to the rest of the season. Go Jayhawks!!
