Maybe White Men Can Jump, But Apparently They Need Their Sleep Too...

It would appear that our fearless team had a few issues the other night with having enough players to take the hardwood. A late 9:30 game start deterred a few of the crew from showing up, myself included, leaving our captain Eric Espinoza and only two others to take on the league behemoth, the Premature Shooters. Subsequently, the team had to officially forfeit the game. All was not a complete loss. Eric being the resourceful individual that he is scraped enough players from the previous game to fill his roster. These guys are playing two games that late at night and most of us can't even make it for one. Well, "early to bed, early to rise..." is all I have to say. Anyways the team managed to play a respectable game. They fell to the Shooters, but not by the 2:1 margin that others had. The score was, 56-43. Not bad considering. Eric was heard quoting Coach Norman Dale the day after, saying, "If you put your effort and concentration into playing to your potential, to be the best that you can be, I don't care what the scoreboard says at the end of the game, in my book we're gonna be winners."

Good outlook Cap, and give 'em hell in the playoffs.
