Eric was told yesterday that because he is missing practice on December 23rd he won't be able to play in the first tournament game which is on December 27th. Eric said, "That's fine. Gotta see my family at Christmas!" The coach said, "I just want you to know it's not a punishment," and Eric said, "I understand."
If it's not a punishment, what is it? He'll be at the December 26th practice. Oh well, I guess those are the rules. I know Eric would rather be with family and not be here with just the two of us on Christmas Day, so that's just the way it goes.
I'm excited about tomorrow's game against Chaminade and Bradley Beal, who is ranked #7 in the country. They'll be tough to beat and the crowd will be HUGE!
I leave you with a picture of my little friend Katie and Eric's ginormous size 16 shoe that was in the car. Katie had never seen anything like it and wanted me to take "their" picture.
