There are a lot of things I’m thankful for this time of year but one is definitely basketball.
With so many things to disagree about these days, the one thing pretty much everyone in Kentucky can agree on is that basketball season is the best. Admittedly, I’ve struggled with getting as into basketball these past few years. There’s a few reasons why my obsession waned, mostly because of the passing of my biggest bball buddy, but also because it’s been tough to get into our state’s signature teams these last couple years. But this year, I’m back.
Most of that has to do with new bball buddy – D3. Watching him write out his favorite Louisville players, keep track of all their stats and encourage me to watch every single minute of basketball has reignited my passion for the game. The way he knows every players number and stats reminds me of when I was a kid and kept track of every single detail possible. Don’t even get me started on how much I love watching him fill-in all his brackets in March. It makes my heart swell.
