March 23: 1,500 wet ones

23 Mar

It wasn’t fast, but it was very satisfying.  With a steady drizzle coming down to cool things off and make for excellent ball gripability, it took a little more than two hours to get through 1,500 made foul shots in the driveway — with the help of the trusty “Annette,” the SKLZ Rapid Fire ball-getting system.

As long as it’s not too cold and/or windy, rain is no big deal at allllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll (That, by the way, is a legitimate, unintended typing snafu right there … I just fell asleep and my right ring finger landed on the ‘L’ button for a few seconds.).  What I’m trying to say here is that rain is no fun at a picnic, but it’s way better than wind when it comes to this foul shooting project.

OK, enough of this.  I’m going to bed before my head lands on the keyboard.

That’s 188,007 down, 811,993 to go to 1 million made foul shots.
