I love basketball.
I love everything about it.
I love the feeling of looking for a win on Friday night,
And the feeling on Saturday morning when you’ve found it.
I love that quote, although I have taken a bit of liberty with it. It's actually from the movie, “Radio,” and I exchanged the word football and replaced it with the word basketball. By the way, excellent movie.
The first basketball game I can remember was in 1948, I was six years old. I now have been following basketball for 60 plus seasons.
Tonight another basketball season begins for me, and as I sit just a couple of rows behind the bench, I see that all too familiar look on the face of a coach, a look that is hard to describe, a cross between happiness and pain. It really is a great game!
