Tournaments and Travel

Eric made the Majestics team! Sprained ankle and all. There are 15 kids who made it, but I'm sure some of them will drop out after the coach gathered the parents and told them it will cost at least $500.00 and there will be lots of traveling. The $500 doesn't include shoes but does include uniforms, tournament fees and hotel rooms. Here is their tournament schedule:

March 27-29 Memphis Invitational (Memphis, TN)

April 4-6 Adidas Invitational (St. Louis?)

April 10-12 Knox Vegas Heat Invitational (location?)

April 24-26 King James Shootout (Akron, OH)

May 1-3 Greater Midwest Classic (location?)

May 15-17 State Championship (location?)

May 22-24 Specie Run-N-Slam (Ft. Wayne, IN)

June (?) Mac Irvin Challenge (Chicago, IL)

July 10-16 AAU Nationals (Clarksville, TN)

Their first practice is this Saturday from 4-7 at McClure High School. They will probably practice twice a week - Thursdays and Saturdays.
I like this joke by Elizabeth Miller:

"Hello, Mrs. Miller," said the bearded guy behind the counter of the bagel shop.

My husband looked at him but drew complete blanks. "I'm sorry, do we know each other?" I asked.

"Yeah, you was my English teacher."

Leaning over, my husband whispered, "Good job, honey. Good job."
