FIRST GAME

Today was my first game as a Washington General. The game was in Harlem, NY at the Harlem Armory in front of about 2-3 thousand intercity children. I was very excited for the game even though our wake up call was 5:30am!! Luckily I was able to participate in the game, as one other rookie General and I were the only newcomers that played. The show was so much fun and received priceless reactions from the children. I played in the second quarter and scored a couple lay-ups and a short jump shot. I also have been chosen to be the Generals' player that puts a glass covering over the globetrotters basket (due to my height, ha....ha) in the third quarter (by means of a ladder). I did not receive a very positive response from the crowd to say the least! Overall, our team did a great job in the show and shot lights out. Unfortunately, we came up on the short end once again....losing to the darn globetrotters 92-86!! Maybe next time. As for the next few days, we have a couple more practices before leaving for the Mediterranean on Friday. The journey has just begun!


GO GUILFORD BASKETBALL!!

Sounds awesome, bro. Did you tell your coaches about the notorious long-range shots that you and your teams have been known for. I'm talking about the half-court swish to end the first half of that CHHS game. Also the full-court shot to win that Guilford game. Maybe that's something you can incorporate into the show! Peace, C-note.

Caleb!! We are so proud!! You know, I used to live in the same neighborhood with the famous globe trotter, Curly Neal! he drove a big white Caddy and wore a big white cowboy hat. You know, if you need a personal ATC for that trip to the Mediterranean, I am in. :)
Best of luck and I am looking forward to reading about your adventures!
