Friday night Eric went downhill skiing for the 1st time and, of course, loved it. He had been invited by his buddy Jack. He needed to take a lesson and stay on the easy slopes. so he didn’t do much skiing with Jack.
Saturday morning HP Gold played two basketball games in the Rome League; v.s. Oneida and v.s. Oriskany, winning both games.
Saturday evening we went to play volleyball in Remsen, unremarkable except for the fact that we were playing on women’s height nets and I took a ball to the glasses and forehead by blocking above the net. The glasses gave me a patterned cut across both eye lids and forehead, rendering me looking like a face-tatooed StarTrek character.
Sunday morning HP Gold played a team from Utica at the Jewish Community Center. It was challenge for the boys as they had not played ‘stealing off the dribble’ and it took a while to adjust. Some boys wilted under the pressure, but Luke relished it. Eric played well, scoring 8 points. At one point he made 3 consecutive shots. I was pleased that he used a little pump fake on two of his shots – making one of them.
