Day 260 of Firsts: Spin the Basketball

16 Sep

When I went to Catholic high school in Philadelphia, we just had one coach for football and basketball.  He took all of us who turned out and had us run through a forest.  The ones who ran into the trees were on the football team.  ~George Raveling

If you’re ever stressed or stuck on a problem, pick up a basketball.   I can’t play but I know as soon as you start dribbling you feel a little better. A little basketball break is a good one.

I don’t have a hoop in the office so I asked co-workers to teach  me their best tricks.  10! Show executive producer Mina Sabet showed me her best stuff first and then intern Kerri Corrado tutored me on giving the ball a “spin”.

That’s as good as it got but I’m keeping the basketball by my desk.  The new stress ball!
