Hoopfest 2010

Just recently got back from Spokompton, home of Hoopfest -- the biggest 3 on 3 contest in the world!!

I didn't really orgasm, but it was pretty damn fun. And I'm not exaggerating about it being the biggest 3 on 3 tourny either. 25,000+ players, 200+ courts. They practically close down all of downtown Spokane for this event.

Driving there was wowie... 5 hours one way. That was probly the most I've ever driven in one sitting -- my ass felt pretty tender *pause*.

To quickly summarize, we fought through the loser's bracket (we lost our second game) and made it to the championship. Only thing is, we fell short there -- I think everybody was super exhausted. I know I was. We had to win practically six games back-to-back just to get to the final game, THEN we had to beat the winner's bracket team twice in a row.

Sucks to have a shirt that says 'Finalist' -- practically first loser -- but hey, we did really well for our first time (that's what they said). I was happy with both my play and my teams play.

Some pictures...
Super tired.
Justin. That's good.
Titus. That's good.
Jordan. That's good.
Arthur. Maaan, you already know that's good.
Best player at Hoopfest.
BONUS PICTURE: My ankle that I played 6+ games on because I hurt it early in the tournament.

I played the last six games commando because I forgot to pack underwear and socks -- I'm kewl (and also a dumbass). But damn, when did boxer briefs cost 20 dollars?! And that's for two!! I didn't buy them from Fred Meyer's because wow, thats expensive.

So basically, I was ballin' while my balls were ballin'. Halla.
