Did I mention I’m assistant coaching Vince’s basketball team? Did I mention that I have no idea what a short forward does? Or a guard? Or a center? I have all these basketball enthusiasts around me telling me that we have to “pick and roll” or “teach the fundamentals” and I’m at a loss. So I went to the local high school (with my running pal and head coach Christine)and watched an early evening basketball (JV) game and talked to some of the dads of the players. They also mentioned the “pick” and the “fundamentals”. As in “OMG! Did you see that? That was the perfect pick!” I thought to myself “?. You are not really helping me people.” Anyways I’m very lucky to have a head coach who loves coaching and also doesn’t really know basketball. We are having a good time.
Also, last night we were confused. When people tell you that Hanukkah ends on Sunday, it means that it really ends Saturday night. So only 7 candles were lit on the 8th night.
