I Needed That

Filed under: actual action, basketball, Gil Thorp — nedryerson @ 3:46 am


Thanks for the pep talk, Gil. It’s Monday morning and this plot is shuffling along to some tepid conclusion. Even “actual action” isn’t so cheerful. The Florida Gators laid a giant egg in the East region final yesterday in a game that they could have won despite the fact that they seemed to have no idea what to do with the ball inside the 3-point arc. (They don’t have 3-pointers in high school ball, do they? Shows how much I know!)  Don’t get me started on officiating, Charles Barkley, TV commercials for insurance, etc.

I’m just glad to be here. I’m gonna have a cup of coffee and relax




  1. This plot has dragged endlessly and “key points” have been repeated ad nauseam, and yet the decisive moment — Gil’s confrontation with Tina and his (presumed) rapprochement with Aaaaron — were rushed through in an eye blink. In fact, we never did see any sign that Gil had gotten through to Aa. We’re just supposed to infer it, I guess.

  2. It seems in P1 Aaron’s long hair is on the right while in P2 it’s on the left. Hell, what do I know. My barber only charges $5.

  3. Imagine how good this team could have been had Gil spent time talking to other players…

  4. Just to fill in, not only do they have 3-pointers in high school, they have them for middle school leagues. And hen our son was in elementary school rec center leagues, they started allowing threes by about third grade, IIRC.
