Tin and I woke up at 6:45 am this past Sunday morning so we could go to the 7:30 am mass, so we could head to Sherman Oaks to play basketball…well, Tin played basketball. I took pictures, and Pinay and Fernand went to Trader Joe’s to buy some Mochi Balls and Pirate’s Booty. Hahaha…
It was Team Bev-Tin-Ja vs. Team Mel-Pat-James. These people were serious, driving the ball to the hoop without fear, passin’ the ball all fancy, shooting 3’s galore. Wow, I didn’t know it was gonna be like that. It got kind of rough at one point. Bev scratched Melissa’s arm! Hahaha…oh you Canonigo Sisters, so competitive!
During a break between games (they played 4 I think), these guys came onto the court and started shooting. Mel was like, “Umm, hello we’re still playing.” Then they offered to play for the court and all of us were like, hmmm, interesting. There was another court that had been occupied since before WE got there (and those people took up full-court), and another game going on the other half of our court. Why did they come up to THIS side? What dude, cuz we’re Asian? Cuz we got girls on this team? Mel and Pinay were all over it. Hahaha…So they left.
Fernand was like, oh God if they come back with their posse we should run. Hahaha…
After, we had lunch at THE STAND, this sitdown hot dog place on Ventura. Mmmm....Tin had so much fun that she made a slideshow of the pictures I took (Cile I think she IS your sister. hahaha!), complete with slide transition effects, music and everything. Too bad I don't know how to put it on a dvd. It's pretty good actually. Anyhow, the little sister hadn't played in two weeks since her season ended (Their JV Team won the title in their division!), so she was sore as all hell. She starts weight training in a couple of weeks then she has summer league, then conditioning in the fall before the season starts again in December. Hopefully playing with these folks teaches her a thing or two about bball. (See more pics to the right!)
