Being about two stone lighter for this one I was hoping I might be a little bit closer to dunking, unfortunately my new found lightness came from a fortnight of vomiting, diarrhea and kidney stones, so by the end of the game just standing up was good enough for me.
I was just making up the numbers for this one, I was so tired and dehydrated I wasn't good for much but walking about waving a hand feebly in the air... the fact I scored eight points says more about how badly I've been underperofmring on the other nights than anything else.
Monday's game is the last of the season and my last ever for Wrexham Raiders as the team's financial problems mean they are being forced to fold. Hope Lions have picked up our registrations, which I think gives them the choice of keeping us or trading us on to another team during the offseason if we ask them to... we'll have to see what happens.
When Michael Jordan left the Chicago Bulls they retired his 23 shirt and hung it up above the basketball court... I'm thinking of retiring my shirt and hanging it on the telephone line in the carpark :)
This is easier than boring my mates individually, but if you don't want it just email 'BLOG-OFF' to david.lawson @ nwn.co.uk
