Church Basketball

I got a chance to play my first church league basketball game last night. (my teams second) I missed the first game due to that awful conjunctivitus I had. I couldn't get over how rough it was, I figured that it would be a little easier going. I played in high school and played in the Wichita City league one summer and never played in a game as rough as the one last night. One thing I do know is that the refs don't call a very tight game so there is a lot of slaps and get knocked around that wouldn't be allowed in high school. You were pretty much guaranteed to get knocked around if you drove to the basket and a high chance that there wouldn't be a foul called.

Besides that it was a lot of fun to get back on the court and play some competitive basketball. It is hard to believe how long it has been since I last played in the city league. (6 or 7 years ago.) My game is definitely a little rusty and I need to get back into the swing of things, but I look forward to playing again. Next time I will know that I can get away with a lot more on the defensive end of things. Honestly I wonder if I shouldn't be dressed in football attire!!!
