A Basketball Tale

Basketball tip off at grade school game
My biggest lifetime shot at fame
Got the ball and took off
Heard the yells from aloft
Wrong way I went but good my aim

Basketball Meanderings


Played basketball with Fred at a church.
Haven’t played basketball
since my daughter
was a twinkle in my eye.
All the things
I used to do with a ball,
I had put away
in a file marked “use to.”
Sometimes, I take it out,
dust it off, look it over,
then put it back for later.
Every now and then,
I make a basket, throw a pass,
that reminds me
of the “use to” file.
That file gets added to daily.
I just don’t use it 
as much as I ‘use to.”

Belly ache when the basketball game had started,

Where Mister Gilbert Arenas Can Go

Mister Gilbert Arenas tweeted that 'no one will care'
  if Nikola Jokic, two-time NBA MVP at 24, becomes the heir
    to players like Michael Jordan, who played with some flair

  'Jokic's not cool enough,' says this Mr. Gilbert Arenas
  Well then, Mr. NO MVP OR TITLE EVER WON ~
    You can just go and stroke your pen...(al thing) for us

I made the bet on who’d win the game
the Bulls looked great; my team played quite lame
dressed in clown’s clothes
with a red clown nose
the whole office will laugh without shame
