Matthew's First Game

Matthew’s Tar Heels lost their first game 31-15. One of their better players was missing, and another was bottled up and didn’t get the ball enough. The point guard could’ve shot more, too. The team they practice against also lost, by a similar score…I had thought they were about equal, or slightly better.

M had one rebound, and got off a shot from near the foul line. He was open, so it was good that he turned and shot. After a slow start, he played decent defense, with only a lapse or two near the end. He started and played the first half of all four quarters, then re-entered the game for the last minute and a half.

Friday night I took Matthew to the rivalry basketball game, Flight vs. Crown. Wasn’t much of a game…Flight won by 58, playing the entire bench. DJ had 19 and Connor 13…and 3 or 4 others were also in double figures. Will and some buddies painted their bodies for the game…I’m sure Kara, Alyssa, and Lucy were impressed.

Ceil and Anna went to a tea party at Living Science. Will and the girls should’ve gone. I ran into one of the tea party girls at NP Sunday morning, who knew some were at the game.

Cleaned upstairs Saturday until after 1:30. Didn’t watch much football, running errands during the SEC game. Saw Induction at the Picture Show. Quite an interesting movie…one of those you have to watch more than once to get it all.

At NP they always put on interesting musical productions for Christmas. Last year singers located in Buckhead, Alpharetta, and Cumming simultaneously sang parts of “The Twelve Days of Christmas” together. Yesterday ten “musicians” played Christmas songs on iPads, iPods, and iPhones. After the 9 am service Ceil kept running into people to talk to, and we wound up staying to watch the iPad songs lead off the 11 am service. By then my back hurt from all the standing.

Went to BP Sunday night, and of course they were already out of the cards. Might’ve been a weekend thing.

It won’t hurt too bad to have Werth go to the Nats.
