Finals week! Final Blog of the academic year!
And if you are wondering why I haven’t posted in a couple of weeks, here’s why.
First, I accepted an invitation by a senior student to be on his intramural basketball team. The good news is that I played well enough that the opponent actually started to guard me. The bad news is that I tore meniscus in my left knee and had minor surgery. Lessons learned? Probably none. In fact I want to go out and play as soon as the rehab concludes. But my wife Mary carefully reminds me that there is a reason why there isn’t a senior circuit for basketball like there is for golf.
So perhaps I scored my last points in competitive basketball (in a game, by the way, that we lost by two points). But perhaps not. How can I possibly go out on a loss?
My stupidity in playing against athletes a third my age did not keep me from having a great couple of weeks that were as busy as you would expect.
