Basketball Thoughts & Observations

Tryout Season

A Red Herring: An expression referring to a tactic of diverting attention away from an item of significance.

 

We had a dinner party scheduled for Saturday night, so imagine my surprise when Mrs. Basketball Coach absolved me of household chores and suggested I play a round of golf during the afternoon.  Pitching in domestically or using my pitching wedge is not a tough choice.  I felt like Ferris Buehler, only with a permission slip.

 

Fast forward several hours…………post golf, upon entering the house, it was sensory overload; rock music coupled with laptops and lasagna.  I had entered a twilight zone where Iron Maiden met Iron Chef.  “Ok, I understand the mood music, the lasagna, pot of sauce on the stove, and the smell of freshly baked bread, but what’s up with the three laptops tightly arrayed on the counter?” 

 

“Oh, those, Mrs. Coach said.  “With the dawning of a new season, I’m going to hold tryouts as well.”  Huh?  {methinks she may be carrying the Mrs. Coach blog moniker a bit too far; nonetheless, I’ll bite}, what do you have in mind?

 

“Well, I want to be inclusive and give everyone a fair shot.  I want to design the tryout process to identify the top selections.  I’ll look at a mix of big and small, and certainly will not exclude anyone based upon color.  The final cuts will be hard, so I think I need to surround myself with a few unbiased evaluators to help sort through the B/S.  Towards that end, I’ve assembled my team and we’re putting together a list of names for next Saturday.”

 

The astute reader will recognize when I’ve been had.  I hadn’t reached that stage of reality yet.  I was still in my pre-dinner food sampling mode (hmmmm, come to think of it, why wasn’t I getting yelled at?).  Back to reality.  A player list?  Next Saturday?  I quickly moved to the laptop side of the counter to see what this tryout talk was all about.

The player list was instantly recognizable.  Boucher, Darrow, Wilde, Heiser, Uptown, and Lexus.  An asterisk was next to International Autos. Am I to assume that is going to be the darling of tryouts and the potential #1 draft pick?  Of course, we have had new car talks in the household, but I assumed our family contribution to stimulating the economy was on hold until our trees and flowers bloomed next year.  Mrs. Coach seems to be altering the timeline significantly.

 

“While I’m shopping with Sally and Sherry next Saturday, we’re going to test drive a few cars”.

 

 

Shouldn’t I be there to help?  “I figured you’d be watching the World Series”.  No, that’s done; Chicago won. “Well, then enjoy the Packer game”.  No, they play Sunday.  “How about sneaking in a last round of golf with Glenn?”

 

There it was again, the please go golfing suggestion.  It’s a win-win proposition as she promised to hold a second round of tryouts with me in attendance.  But the world is changing.  It’s certainly a new season in many ways!

It is amazing that people who think we cannot afford to pay for doctors, hospitals, and medication somehow think that we can afford to pay for doctors, hospitals, medication and a government bureaucracy to administer it.
