We played our first game on Monday night and unfortunately the other team scored more points, so it’s officially considered a loss. This was the first game our boys have played together as a team. Well, about half of them. 4 of them were last years kids, and 4 of …

We decided to play some minute to win it type games at the party and I’ve learned that kids, being good athletes, does not always translate to being good at other things. They were terrible and hitting paper footballs into the uprights. They didn’t know how to shoot a rubber band …
This weekend for my birthday we celebrated by getting to downtown Kansas city and going to the KC grub crawl. If you don’t know what that is, it’s okay. I didn’t either. Instead of going to different bars and having beers along the way, you get to stop at different restaurants …
A coworker came up this morning and said “how’s the world treating you”. I was going to say fine, as the usual office banter goes, but stopped mid-breath. I told her, “ah, well, the world doesn’t care about me”. She backtracked a bit, maybe worried that she hit a soft …
We went out and took a weekend trip all the way down to West Plains, MO. If you have no idea where that is, it’s okay. Apparently there’s still a few places in the country without a network connection to the rest of the world. No bars, no wifi, no …

We won championship for the league tournament. 2nd in another and champions again in another.
Really proud of how far everyone has come. Next year we do Kid pitch and the game changes again. Another season between the white lines, so much fun.

This is where we start the year. With a win. I really wanted to share this picture of My Father in Law, My Dad and my 2 kids at the magic hour.
Please enjoy and share the basketball video from our 2014 season. This year we called ourselves RAMPAGE. Just because I’ve never seen it before. Next year we may go competitive, but this was a fun season.
Edited by me. Video shot by my lovely wife and daughter. They deserve most of the credit.

We had a fantastic and fun season with no drama at all. Made it to championship game but came in 2nd.
So very proud of all our players. I hope we inspired a love of basketball in these kids. I like to believe they will continue to play and I like to believe that it’s because of our awesome coaches. I’m sure the attitudes of our players and their parents help a lot too.
I can go on and on about the season and the players. But in order to keep it short. I’ll try to summarize.
First, Parents/people are crazy.
This is 2nd grade basketball. This year we had an end of the year tournament. Which sounded like an excellent idea because… well, we get to play more basketball. But that seemed to turn up the notch on crazy competitiveness. I heard things from parents that I would be disappointed in hearing from a 12 year old.
Luckily my parents were very cool and understanding. We actually made it to the championship game with our little team. Which is amazing in itself.
Third, I really enjoy this coaching kids thing. I’m not sure I could handle Jr High or High School like my buddy who just won coach of the year for his district over in New Mexico. But it’s fun getting the fundamentals down for some of these kids. Some days it’s rewarding to know that they’ve actually learned a lot about the game.
Meant to post this here.
This was only 2 quarters of play.
Unfortunately we still lost.
