There are days that I feel badly for the basketball ladies. I am a mauler. Some weeks are much worse than others. A few weeks ago I was so bad that I am surprised that someone did not attempt to wear a welding helmet this week.
When I played soccer, I made up for my lack of talent with aggressiveness. You cannot really do that on the court. I find myself apologizing to someone almost every play. I try to back off an not guard as closely but, my hand just seems to make contact with them every time.
Last night was one of the better nights. I felt good about myself and a few ladies asked if I was practicing between games. I think one of the major reasons is. we played four on four. I am able to "see" more. When you have five on five the court is cluttered and I just cannot react quickly enough to play effectively.
