Just some thoughts:
Hear, hear now all hands on deck...
One of my favorite basketball teams is off to a rocky start. And looking into the future I think rocky may be the road of travel this year. Currently as of this writing they are 2 & 7. Two wins and seven losses.
The coach, he is a good guy and a good coach. What he and his school stands for do not make me want to hang my head and say "what's going on here?" The kids are good kids, they go to class. Neither the coach or they do not embarrass me as their fan. They are trying to get an education.
I've been a basketball fan for a long time. Long time and the love of the game has never gone away. Been a fan longer than most folks who show up for these games. Growing up in the hey day of high school basketball (1950s') in Indiana I think it was just natural. Maybe it was in the popcorn. . Me? Me abandoned ship? You gotta be kidding.
Maybe Mary Dvorak of Penelope, Texas, population 211 said it best when speaking about
the Penelope, Wolverines, the local six man high school football team:
"We're proud of those young men. They may not be winning much, but they're giving their best, building something for the little one, down in junior high and elementary school."
Where Dreams Die Hard--Carlton Stowers
Abandoned them, come on. What are you thinking? As I age my definition of winners and losers is changing. The final score will not always appear on the field house scoreboard.
You will find me in the same seat come game time. (Even before game time to be truthful--gotta watch them warm-up--get your popcorn and coke )

some years years in which they forget where the bus is parked."
