In less than 3 weeks, we erratically threw together a charity Alumni Basketball Game. Graduating classes 2000-2006. After a few practices, several bossy Facebook messages and probably 400ish phone calls on Coach's cell... the boys Tipped-off last night.
We were very pleased with the results.
Well.... maybe not very pleased.

he asked his Dad for an autograph... so cute.)
Does Coach especially enjoy losing??
A.) I explained, we raised $1705.00 to be donated to the Jr High and Youth Basketball Programs. Win.
B.) Several players proposed a Best of Seven, of the Newly Established Feud of the 2000's. WIN. WIN. WIN... for Coach.
It was an excellent night. The game was competitive and thrilling to watch. The fans came out in force. The family/reunion style gathering after the game was most enjoyable. 3 weeks worth of planning and mild-stress induced headaches??
Totally worth it. Totally.
