This coffee thing- I didnt play hoops in high school but I cant imagine going for coffee after basketball practice. Usually need a cold beverage. But these are girls. Do their parents know they’ll be late getting home for dinner? I assume practice is roughly an hour; how far away is CC? Did they drive or walk?  Whatever—they cant be getting home before 5:30. Maybe they dont eat til 7. We ate at 5:30 every day. And I was home by 3. I had my damn coffee in the morning.


Dont know why Phoebe’s ear is sticking out with all that hair flowing around it. I believe when we met her in December it was covered.



Alexa is basically saying she’s self-conscious about her height, which happens to some girls after they grow up and shoot past their peers. Theyre more comfortable not standing out and she’s clearly not comfortable in her own skin,  which Mimi had pointed out early in the season.  All normal stuff for teenagers, and good for Phoebe for letting her know her height is nothing to be ashamed of.  I liked being tall, but I was a guy.

So maybe this convo will turn Alexa’s game around a bit, and she can reach her offensive potential, and also I suppose get it on with Chris, and end the silly competition in her head with him? On to next week…

A program note– I’m filling in for Teenchy again, who let me know he may be stepping down from this duty after basketball season for various reasons. Hope he changes his mind; I enjoy his points of view as well as everyone elses on this mighty team. But if not, we may need someone to add another day or else hire another blogger from outer space. Just giving a heads up for that..


Finally, I had a comment yesterday about my referencing The Paper Chase as a study group example. I wanted to find the clip where the arrogant Bell runs after Hart and Ford with his 500-page outline and drops it all out the window as theyre leaving the dorm to study at a hotel. His scream is priceless. The best I could do was this:


  1. That movie is one of my favorites. Alexa had to take ‘Pheebs out for coffee to tell her this? Uh, like okey-dokey then

  2. Teenchy, I DO hope you change your mind. As I told Timbuys, George Harrison joined the Traveling Wilburys because he wanted to be part of a group again. That’s me to a T. I LOVE being part of a team. I have always liked your trenchant humor and look forward to it every time it’s your turn.
    I don’t want to stand in the way of family, business, etc. obligations. I know this is a commitment and COMPLETELY understand.
    That said, you would DEFINITELY be missed and hope you do change your mind. You have always been an asset to the site and represent it well. You da Man.

  3. This kind of redefines the Phoebe/Alexa relationship
    Not that Rubin is going anywhere with that

  4. 1. I never heard of “The Paper Chase”… Might warrant further investigation.

    2. As I high school basketball player I never went out for coffee afterwards (or even hung out with my teammates afterwards) Not only was I hungry as hell after practice, I’d still have Latin and Calc homework (ugh) and that was AFTER taking the dog for a long walk. Of course to be fair, when I was in HS, there was no Starbucks everywhere so coffee shops weren’t the “spot” to hang out. We had to settle for shopping malls, video game arcades, Burger King and 7-11 parking lots…

    3. For the record, my ex-GF is at Starbucks regularly, but she orders tea 95% of the time. Maybe these girls are the same??
