In the schedule we saw that on Saturday it was supposed to be Hoopsfest, but we didn't know what that meant. We were pleasantly surprised when it turned out to be a big production! On hand for the game was the biggest group of fans any kid could ask for: Uncle Jay and Christina drove down from Columbus; Uncle Paul came in from Cleveland; Aunt Jill and Uncle Nick came from Dayton; as well as Grandma and Grandpa R, Aunt Erin, Uncle Joe and Gracie, and Grandpa M.
Usually they have two games going at once, on shorter courts. This game the kids played full court, which is a big difference for those little legs! But I'm getting ahead of myself--before the game even began the lights went off, a smoke machine started up and a spotlight shinned on a banner made by the moms of each team. As the team was announced they broke through their banner and ran to the center of the court to be announced. For whatever reason our gold team wasn't able to break through their banner. Here is a short video of it:
Louie didn't score any points that day, but he had rebounds in the double digits! Each time the announcer called out his name! It was such a fun way to end the season.
Stay tuned: baseball starts at the end of April!
