Basketball


I have started playing basketball again and its been an interesting journey.  Now, one would think that by playing Church ball every Thursday night and Apple Athletic Club B-ball tournament every Tuesday night, that i would begin to get into shape.  Could i be more wrong!?  I honestly feel like an 80 year old man every game, and this feeling was confirmed when i saw this post-game picture. (photo below).  I am on the left, the one with the huge arms.
Oh yes, and i also rolled my ankle!  I wish i could say that i went up for a sweet dunk and came down on top of another player and messed up my ankle....well thats not quite what happened.  I actually was on a fast break all by myself and went up for a sweet lay-up and  before i got off the ground, the damage was done.  At least i didnt break my hip!!

Holy crap! It may be time to consider playing basketball with ankle braces, knee braces, and a sports bro.
I want to know if you got a "T" at the church game...or is Jus the only one that does that?

OUCH!! I am sorry Zach. That looks painful! Church ball can get pretty ruff, so don't get to down on yourself! Brandon is playing church ball too, and he is getting pretty good. Hope your ankle feels better soon!

Oh that stinks. I'm sorry. Hey we miss you guys too! I thought you would want to know that Ezra calls his nursery leaders Zach and Shantay! :) He has also named some of the little kids, Luke, Noah, etc. It's hilarious. I don't correct him. He misses you guys. Poor kid. We would love to get together with you sometime.

Oh no Zach. It looks like you and your brother have the same ankles. He always wears a brace on the ankle that is weaker. So sorry.
