A bad way to get a promotion
Another bantam basketball note for today. As we enter round two of the playoffs, we will do so without our best player, our point guard. Yesterday, in one of the freak accidents that can only happen to 7th grade boys, he broke his thumb. That's bad. What's more, it moves my kid to the point. The only good news is that our pretty-poor record in the regular season bought us a ticket to the lowest level of our playoffs, so hopefully he won't be bringing up the ball against a devastating press like we've seen from some of the big public-school teams we played in the regular season. If we can survive the next round, we may get James back for the semi-finals. Or we may be stuck without him all the way through. Either way, I guess it's a good thing we didn't cut the lucky hair.
