If you live in North Carolina, you know basketball is serious in this state.
On Saturday, my whole family set out to watch his first game. I guess we were expecting Duke University versus Chapel Hill. My group has become enthralled with college basketball and our professional team, The Charlotte Bobcats. I guess we forgot that the kids were seven years old and younger. Pewee basketball is a fun version of the game with a loose respect for the rules of the game. You do not have to dribble. You can catch a rebound and run holding the ball tightly to the opposite goal and shoot. I would have been great at this game.
My preteen daughter was appalled. She wanted to know if the referee was blind to the constant walking. She tried to call a foul from the stands. My fourteen-year-old son wanted to know if he had to ever come to another Pewee game again. He had enough when the lone five-year-old on the team shot at the wrong goal… The Pewee tournament starts in a few weeks and March Madness will have begun at our local YMCA!
