1,000 more, in a struggle.
By golly, sometimes even with that big huge basket (you know it can actually fit two basketballs side by side, right?) sitting right there in front of you, just 15 feet away and welcoming … well … sometimes, you just stink. And by “you,” I mean me.
We (with Papa as ball-getter) still got through a thousand in less than two hours, which is the goal around these parts, but it kind of felt like every shot was an adventure. So as Bill Belichick might say, it’s time to start thinking about the next one, which is tomorrow and which, by the way, might very well take us to the 10,000 mark.
But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. For now, it’s 8,817 down, 991,183 to go.
