This is fun.
It’s also fun when Jamario Moon gets an assist from Smush Parker and takes it in for a nice slam in the first quarter.
Here, you can see.
Ah, the power of the BlackBerry KEYone slow-mo camera phone.
And it’s even more fun when Jamario Moon himself retweets your video to all his followers.
Oh, it’s a great night for basketball.
And it’s also a great night for a Patroons win. Edwin Ubiles drained 38 points and made anyone who tried to defend him look silly. Lloyd “Pooh” Johnson drained three-pointers like they were going out of style. It got so bad for Vancouver, in fact, that it looked as if they were caught with their pants down.
Oh wait … they kinda were … 😀
In fact, I had some fun verbally heckling one of their players, Zach Reynolds. Reynolds was previously on the Rochester Razorsharks roster, and he was a bit of a rah-rah guy who tried to fire up his team from the bench – then he would go into the game and cough up a couple of turnovers. I got into his head with comments about his dreadful play …
And then I found out he was traded a few days ago – to Vancouver.
There he is, back in the Armory. And there he goes, trying to rev up his team. And there he goes, yapping at the refs and getting a technical foul for his efforts.
Of course I couldn’t let that go. Razzed him for all he was worth.
By the third quarter, when Vancouver was trying to stage a comeback, Reynolds walked over to the bench for some water, looked at me and said, “I don’t want to hear nothing from you, big mouth!”
At that moment I knew … I had gotten into his head. HA!
In the end … Albany goes 10-1, they’re glued to the top of the NAPB league standings, and I’m happy. That’s right, Chuck is happy.
You seem surprised.
But it’s true. The Patroons are back, they’re putting up a massive winning record … and it just feels awesome to go to the Armory and have a great time doing so.
