You year-longers suck...

I've registered, read the rule books, read the manuels, POLISHED THE EQUIPMENT, and still, according to the countdown on my desktop have 55 days, 13 hours, 9 minutes, and 52, 51, 50 seconds until my opening day.

Soooooooooo long...... :banghead: :BD:


JUCO ball has started here which means one thing: I wasn't selected to move up to JUCO level this year. :)

High school ball starts the end of March.

I've already worked 3 scrimmages and a JV game. I have 12 games scheduled for the week ahead; 2HS DH and a TC Tournament Sat and Sun. It will be sunny and in the 60's. Gotta love north Texas.

I've been off several years and made the decision to get back into it...yes right as the season is starting, so I'm missing this year. I know what you've been going through.
