b-b-b-basketball

Today I learned that I don’t understand

the thrill of basketball

for the life of me.

And I am OK with that…kaishon sneakers 1 ‘Any American boy can be a basketball star if he grows up, up, up.’ ~Bill Vaughnnext week 4Study 1 - black border (resized 150) ‘Fans never fall asleep at our games,

because they're afraid they might get hit by a pass.’

~George Ravelingnext week 2‘The secret is to have eight great players

and four others who will cheer like crazy.’

~Jerry Tarkanian next week 3 ‘These are my new shoes. They're good shoes.

They won't make you rich like me, they won't make you rebound like me, they definitely won't make you handsome like me.

They'll only make you have shoes like me. That's it.’

~From a Charles Barkley commercial for basketball shoes, 1993

Such excellent action shots. I'm so impressed!

Kristina P. said...

It depends on who is playing!

Jennifer said...

Great shots! And I *love* the quotes you added between them! :)

Marilyn said...

Yeah, I never was much into basketball either. Too bad since I had a son that was pretty good and a husband that was a VERY successful coach.

Alicia said...

I love those blue converse!! So cool!!

My husband LOVES basketball (just recently though). He and a bunch of guys play in our church gym after Sunday night service.

Basketball is about the only sport I really understand- so yes! I played up until my Sophomore year in high school, but was never very good.

I don't mind basketball, but I don't LOVE it.

TechnoBabe said...

I want some of those blue high top tennis shoes! Cool.

Ruby Red Slippers said...

No! I don't!
But I play Around the World or PIG when asked to by four boys who matter the most-

Mental P Mama said...

Nothing better than boys and hoops. Except maybe robin's egg blue all stars....

Buckeroomama said...

I love b-b-b-b-basketball! I can sit through a whole game and actually know what's going on. For about 2.8 hours when I was younger, I'd actually entertained the thought that since I'm not tall enough to be a player, I could be a referee!

I love your shots of the boys! Mental P Mama said it best... nothing better than boys and hoops. :)

I just can't keep up with the action in basketball; I'm more of a baseball kind of girl. But I do love those blue high tops, and I love seeing pics of your boys playing basketball! My boy is more into riding bikes and fishing right now; neither one is great as a spectator sport! As always, your quotes are just as perfect as your photos....

You will now learn something about me today. :) I was a cheerleader for our basketball team in high school. (That was the only sports team our little school had.) And I really enjoyed watching the game then.

I cannot immerse myself in any sports on TV, though. I am too easily distracted.

Dayna said...

My little guy spent 2 hours playing bball on our deck the other night. It's funny how they can do things they love for such a long period but the rest... yeah, no attention span there!

Love the action shots.

Michelle said...

Basketball is so much fun.....especially when you are six feet tall and can hold the ball over everyone's head. :)

Erin said...

I wish I were a bball fan, it seems to be on YEAR.ROUND! I don't get it....now football...now you are talking, it's just not on long enough!

EllieNat said...

I just spent the last 10 minutes visiting your blog. You are VERY funny, and you take great pics!

MarshaMarshaMarsha said...

I like watching the highlights on ESPN. :)

That Charles Barkley quote is awesome. And the truth!

Matty said...

Basketball was always my weakness. I was never real good at it.

Frau said...

I used to watch it...now no! I like it but like you don't really understand. Love Kaishon new Chucks, cool color!

Angela said...

I love those shoes! The colour is awesome!

Joanna Jenkins said...

I don't really like watching basketball but I do like watching the Lakers win :-)

Love those blue shoes!

Have a great week,

Busy Bee Suz said...

I don't get basketball either!
Love those blue shoes though...so cute!

May said...

Love the intensity the kids show while playing!! I too do not follow basketball, but do love cricket!!!!

Brooke said...

blueviolet said...

You really caught the feel of the game! Love it!

Caroline (Frogmum) said...

Great action shots, and love the quotes. :) My little guy likes to play basketball...but really he just chases the ball around. ;)

Follygirl said...

I understand unfortunately nothing about Basketball, but it looks as if they had a lot of fun.

lisaschaos said...

I'm not a fan either, but I love the shoes! lol

Mighty M said...

I played in high school, not very well though. Probably was the shoes.

I really only enjoy watching March Madness during the college season.

Laurie said...

I love watching live basketball games, whether high school or college or pro. I can't play well. great post.

Anita Johnson said...

I remember having boys red converse all star basketball shoes, but I have never played the game. Maybe I really was more into fashion than I remember?

Julie Rivera Photography said...

Those are great !I am amazed at the clarity you achieved with those fast movin' fellows. :)

Tezzie said...

Great shots (and quotes!). Looks like great fun was had...but for the life of me, I just can't get into watching organized sports (of any kind!). Love that first pic, too, btw...that 'non-basketball' one ;D

Jack said...

I love watching and playing ball. Wish I was on the court now.
