... the song "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year" came on the radio, and Callahan commented "Christmas isn't the most wonderful time of the year ... basketball season is!" Of course, basketball season and Christmas do coincide, and in truth, basketball season is pretty much year round for the Blackham Bunch. BUT, December - February is REALLY basketball season, and this year, all five boys are involved!
Landon is reffing again, the first couple weeks he was over the 6th grade team league, which is very competitive and can get heated! Last week he pulled the shift at Columbia, and "reffed" both Colton and Cooper's games. This is Colton's first year, and he's having fun. Cooper wasn't sure about signing up, but after his first game, he is very glad Mom went ahead and did it despite his reservations. Keaton has had an undefeated season so far (three games in) but a lingering cough has made lasting through his games tough. Callahan is playing on THREE teams. Junior Jazz in both the 7th and 8th grade divisions, and then a high school prep competition league. There is often overlap in all the games, but we're working it out! If you want to see the Blackham Boys in action, here are a few video highlights, and the complete game schedule and summaries/videos are on the HoopDreams blog.
