Hi, my name is JAL or some of you may know me as son #1 or the boy who calls home at 3:00 a.m. I am going to blog for mom today cuz she doesn't feel good and I think it would be pretty fun and she would probably want me to type rather than to play the electric guitar on volume 10.
Well lets get to the topic. I am attending a team basketball camp a NSM. Its suppose to be a fun camp and not very competitive, not for NSM. Today we played NSM. The game started off great. We lead 10 to 2 about 3 minutes into the game. We were on fire, LJBG threw the ball to me, I had no shot, so I passed it back to him, he shot a 3 pointer and nailed it. As I ran down the court I noticed the scorekeepers(NSM 10th graders) gave us one point instead of three. "Cheaters", I said to LJBG.
Later on in the game I had the ball on the post and shot, I made the shot and was fouled. The score was 25 to 19 our way before I even got the ball. I made the free -throw. After I made it I looked at the scoreboard and the score was 25 to 20. We didn't even get a point and NSM got a point for some reason, maybe the reason was cheating. I went up to the ref and said," Didn't we just earn three points" "yes you did" said the ref. "Well, are they going to add three?" I asked. "Yes, I'll go tell them to". The ref never told them and they didn't add three points.
We went on to lose the game 35 to 33. NSM got their way once again. If they would have added the points they didn't , we would have won. But it will come back and haunt them during the real season. :)
