The Tall One

Some people were whispering loudly..”Who is that tall one?”  Someone answered “That is Noah.”

He is a head or two taller than most of his teammates.  He is six something..I say something because he is always growing.  His Mother is continually buying him new pants…I think she breathes a sigh of relief when it is summer and he wears shorts.

We won’t even talk about shoes.

Shoes

He likes basketball.   I think with his reach ..perhaps boxing would be a good sport for him also.

What a reach

He plays a position called a post.  I know nothing of basketball..except I thought there were Guards and a Center..now there is a post??  They must have changed the names of the player positions in the past forty years.

I’ll say one thing for Basketball..it is much warmer than Hockey.

Noah and the basketball

He did get a shot at the basket.

Noah going for the shot

His team won their game!  He was tired after the game…and ate a really good supper..I heard he is eating two meals in the evening..supper 1 and supper 2.

It was fun to watch him play basketball.  Basketball season is almost over.  I am glad that the weather finally cooperated so we could travel to see a game:)

  1. Glad you got to watch Noah play his basketball game. I've never heard of a "post" before, either. Congratulations to Noah for his win, and I guess it's true that growing boys eat you out of house and home! :-)

  3. I love watching the grandkids play ball. My 10 year old grandson is just the opposite. He is sort and quick, rarely gets to shoot the ball (although did make an fantastic accidental hook shot), but can slip around and steal the ball from the taller boys. Alas our ball season is over. Congrats to Noah's team.

  6. Go team! At least he is getting enough to feed his growing frame. Looking good on that court.

  9. I'm glad the weather and the roads cooperated so you could see Noah play. I bet Noah was proud to have you in the stands.

  10. I love watching my grandson play BB, and he, too, is one of the "tall ones". I really look forward to the season and going to his games. He's going to be a senior next year, so I only have one more year to enjoy it. (sad face) You got some really nice images!

  11. It's always the same with these kids. Somebody is always a head or two taller. Usually it doesn't make much difference as the big kid tends to be awkward and there's always some little guy who can weave in and out and the other kids are left at the post!

  12. Basketball is one of my favorite games (to watch). It takes quickness and skill and teamwork, and it doesn't glorify violence. Good for Noah, and good that you got to watch him play. Good action shots, too.
