And, I might add, I’m thinking “When the Game Stands Tall” didn’t help. We went to see it last week, with recommendations coming in from his past athletes saying stuff like, “Wow. The coach in the movie reminds me so much of Coach (Big Boss).” It was a good movie and both of us are humongous fans of Jim Caveizel. Huge.
The theme was outstanding in spite of some choppy scripting at times. Laura Dern played the wife…ummm, well, Patricia Heaton would have been a possible choice. Dern didn’t do a bad job and certainly, her lines may have suffered from the writing..or lack thereof. But it was an emotional rollercoaster and passes the rating test for viewing with the whole family. That being said…back to BB…and yeah, I intended to post this weeks ago. It got lost. I just found it. 🙂
Do these pics looks familiar? Man, they do to me. You know the old saying, “Coaching is the blood.”? Truer words have never been spoken. Even truer now that grandkids are old enough to bounce a basketball!!
So when the DiLs put their heads together and came up with a plot…errr, plan…to get the old guy on the court again, he accepted the invitation with glee!!! He was excited, the girls were excited…great experience all around!
And the grands are loving it…right along with a couple of their buddies. 9 AM Tuesdays and Thursdays, the old Elk gym is alive again with a coach who played there once. And his dad chased balls there… as did his grandsons (our 3 sons) The cattle have been fed and Paw is a coach again. Well, sort of…
Wow. Does this gym hold a lot of memories! I have spent a LOT of time in this gym!
