Do As I Say, Not As I Do ...

So exactly what have you been encouraged to say?

As I'm signaling to the table in my high school games I say, "Count the hoop". I know now that it's unprofessional and improper terminology, but I've been doing it for forty years, nobody has ever criticized me for it, and with just a few years left to go on the court, mostly "working" afternoon middle school games due to a chronic injury, I'm not about to change, though I will point out to young'uns that I'm wrong, and that they should start out doing it the correct way.
