We are the Champions!

Thus far in EK's sporting adventures, he has found basketball and baseball (t-ball and coach pitch) to be his favorites.  Every Saturday for the last few weeks we have been busy with basketball at our local YMCA.  I don't know how we lucked out, this season most of our games were at 12:00 or later, so we were still able to sleep late! 

Going into today, the team has been undefeated.  One heated game went into overtime, but finally we came out victorious!  Today, we had two games.  First we played the team that we previously went into overtime with.  Although the score was again tied at the end of the game, OT was avoided because we reached the "time limit" for playing.  During our second game we outscored the opposing team and won!

We say we had an undefeated season.  Hey, even if we had one game with a tie, they still didn't beat us!

Way to hustle, EK!

At times EK was motivated by money.  When she was in from college, Aunt K would offer a $1 bill every time he touched the ball.  I don't know if that was what motivated him last week or not, but EK did manage to have clear opportunity to shoot the ball and he made two points for the team!  No points today despite numerous attempts.  It always seems like he really "gets into it" just as the season wraps up.

Earlier this month the team won a contest and the parents and children of the team were able to go to a Mavericks game.  It was a fun night for everyone.  Some people were surprised by how high the seats were, but we thought they were better than our $2 seats (they may be in the nosebleed section, but we still have a blast going).  Our coach even arranged to have "YMCA Bulls" on the big screen for all to see.

Way to go boys!
