Sunday, May 17th, 2009

Phillips and I spent Sunday morning watching high school basketball. Of course, calling it "basketball" is probably a stretch since we were at an AAU tournament, but there were two hoops and an orange ball, so at least it was a basketball-like substance. I recently shared my feelings on AAU ...
