Holidays

So do you all shut it down for 2 weeks in your area due to the holidays too?

My last game is this Saturday & we don't go again until 1/4/08. I was just getting into it... I guess it's back to the ol' youth & wreck ball circuit

What do you guys/gals do to keep sharp during the break?

Nope, I have a varsity game tomorrow night and then Dec 28 and Dec 29 as well. Wouldn't be surprised if I pick one up on the 27th as well.

Nope, I'm done until the 4th as well. I had the opportunity to pick up a couple of games tomorrow night but couldn't because of family commitments. There is a varsity tournament going on next week but I'm still working sub-varsity and don't expect to get a call for that.

After about 8 years off my knees are going to enjoy the 2 weeks off. I feel your pain about just getting into the groove, however. The rust finally felt like it was coming off. Oh well, I'm still going to enjoy the rest.

I have a game tonight and my next one is on the 28th.

My legs will enjoy the week off.

Merry Christmas.

Talking

I'm working a game between some of Santa's elves on the 26th. If I have to call any Ts for hanging on the rim, I'll let you know.

I teach HS so I have the next 2 weeks off and told my assignor I was available day or night for Xmas tourneys...big mistake. I now have 7:30 & 9:30 AM games on 28 Dec, plus a couple more morning games during that week. DOH! Be careful what you volunteer for

Finished 2 early games today, two games each day through 12/23 and then nothing until 12/26.

Santa's always nice, but Im hoping Mrs. Claus will become naughty later on.

Have a JVB game tomorrow then off until Jan. 3. Tweaked a hamstring about a week ago so I can use the time off. I've been going 5 days a week since the start of the season.
