Heeeey,

we have just won streetball Xmas tournament in our small town (there were teams from other towns as well – 6 total). Our record – 7 wins, 0 losses (5 in the group, one semifinal and one final). What a riiiiiide! Now it’s time for little celebration party yay.

Just wanted to share this with you ;)

P.S. Buli's team finished on the 2nd place – and to be fair they won the one in the September… what a cool player he is ;)

I want pictures! Then I won’t have to look stupid when I ask “just what is street ball?”

Good call Dennis. Isn’t the rule that if there are no pictures then it didn’t happen? And, if it didn’t happen, why the celebration?

What the heck, Congrats Martin.

Well it sure sounds like fun! Or in my case a good reason to be paid up at my cardiologist.

Congrats Martin, so what kind a ball player are you. I was pretty good in my day. Back in 68. I won a game for us, the Wolfpack, by a free throw in the last 2 seconds, what a thrill. All the cheerleaders kissed me and the coach, if I remeber correctly. Odd fellow. Anyway, I made the papers. We called the coach funny Ron, he had a gorgeous wife too. Well congrats again MJ. mike Thats michael jordan

Hi Martin;

I was wondering what street ball is also. I wasn’t even close.

Congrats on the 7-0 finish.

Congrats Martin…..half court game I assume. What I used to call streetball many moons ago was a half court game with modified foul rules. Basically if you weren’t bleeding it wasn’t a foul….:).

I was thinking of the New York Streets Stick Ball, I wasn’t close either.

I’m with you Karson – I was thinking it was like the old whiffel ball games we used to play all the time. Congratulations Martin.

Congrats Martin!

You’re just lucky I was not playing in the tournament… You know my 3-point shooting abilities :p

And Buli, how come your team did not win? Gotta practice harder I guess.

Have your say...
