Unhappy

During halftime of a freshman boys game tonight, an interested party took the time to explain to me a little known aspect of the traveling rule. Apparently it is illegal for a player to take more than one step per dribble. For example, when a dribbler dribbles high, he/she often takes two steps. This is traveling. It seems that the problem has something to do with the dribbler moving his pivot without pushing the ball downward to begin the next dribble first. The most surprising thing about this revelation was its source: my partner.

Oh well, I bet him a rootbeer that he can't find the rule on that. It's like printing my own money

So how many "traveling" calls did he have?

Wow is right! Sounds like another "Aflac Duck" moment - if you've seen the one with Yogi Berra in the barber shop, you know what I mean.....
