Bob Katz: March (of Time) Madness: For Hoopsters Everywhere Who've Played in Happy Obscurity

Posted by Tosh Meston on Sat, Mar 20

Bob Katz: March (of Time) Madness: For Hoopsters Everywhere Who've Played in Happy ObscurityBob Katz, an author and contributor to the HuffingtonPost, sent me a link this morning to a story he'd written saluting his 62 year old pick-up basketball playing friend whose b-ball career may have ended recently with a knee injury.  Bob reflects on the love of the sport and the iron-man constitution of his friend, Jerry, who managed a 45+ year long rec ball career.  Here's hoping Jerry can heal up soon, and hoist up a few more threes.  

Cheers to Jerry.

"Alas, Jerry's career enjoyed no such verifiable blazes of glory. All those games, surely numbering in the thousands, all those deft passes and looping outside shots ... well, you'll just have to take our word that marvelous things occurred in those musty YMCA gyms. You certainly won't find the evidence on ESPN Classics."

Have a read, everybody.

Here's a video of stereotypical pickup players by the guys at Dude Perfect.  These videos come out every once in a while, and this one has its moments.  Worth a viewing.
