* By the way, the coolest thing happened in my eleven year old's game. It was the last game of the year for them and one very popular, but very short teammate of my son's hadn't made a basket all year. True story - my son got a rebound with two seconds left, passed it to the little guy, and he made a basket as the horn sounded to end the game and the season. I can tell you every single parent and player was happy for him. What a great way to end the season.
Announcement: I'm in for the Big Climb 2012! And this time I'm on a team, "The Four Seam Fastballs". My wife and kids are joining me and we're going to get some others into the act before we're done.
The Big Climb is a fundraiser for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. They raise a lot of money to combat blood diseases, like the one that took my father-in-law Stew from us far too early. To donate to our team's fundraising page, click here and be generous.
In late March, I'll be climbing 69 flights in the stairwell of the Columbia Tower skyscraper in downtown Seattle, 1311 stairs in all. You can read more about the Big Climb from my posts last year.
|This year's honorary stair training kick-off: Benaroya Hall, home of the Seattle Symphony|
|And now we're back to the local elementary school for the real training...in the rain!|
