Happy Thanksgiving Eve, and at this very moment I’m grateful for my buddy Robbie and his amazing passion and honesty and friendship and, wow, an uncanny ability to take a ball out of a hoop and get it back to the foul line at an remarkably high rate of speed.
We made 1,300, which isn’t the best number on the board to date — Chris Nicolopoulos still holds that distinction at 1,460 in two hours — but based on the 1 hour, 40 minutes it took us to get to 1,300, it was the fastest rate yet at 13 makes per minute (or 1 every 4.6 seconds). Nice work, Bobby!
I had decided to opt for accuracy by not taping up my bad finger, which turned out well in terms of a shooting percentage but probably a choice I won’t make again until it’s completely healed up. It opened pretty quickly today, and by the end of the session a few of my spatterings had actually been transferred to the ball and then onto Rob’s hands. (Is it being melodramatic to make a “blood brothers” reference here? Probably, but I’m going to do it anyway.) Yes, Blood Brothers.
A great day to see one of the greatest guys I know.
That’s now a total of 18,470 down, 981,530 to go.
