What Do I Do Now!

It has been a week since we got knocked out of the playoffs, so a popular question I have been answering is, "What do you do now?".

Last night I filled in my time by reacquainting myself with the sport of indoor cricket. As a child cricket was my number one sport so anytime I get to have a crack, I take up the opportunity. The grade in which the 4TO Trailblazers participate is not going to rival the new IPL in India, but it was a whole lot of fun to join seven other punters and throw the willow around. For anyone who cares, yes we won.

The rest of my week has been filled with surfing the net and checking out the NBL playoffs.

I guess my attention has switched a little more to the NBA and NCAA's right now as I do not really care who takes out the NBL championship. If I cannot win it, I'm not too fussed about the end result.

The NBA becomes interesting now because there have been several trades made that will have an impact on the playoff race. Plus there are about thirty regular season games left so teams start making a push towards the playoffs.

As for the NCAA's, it is only weeks now until March Madness and the tourney begins. This is always a great spectacle and a whole lot of close games, so it is worth a look if you have ESPN. Watch out for the Gonzaga Bulldogs at tourney time!

In my spare time I have also been checking out what follow bloggers have to offer. Rod Benson who plays in the D-League is a regular who I always check out for a little lite hearted view of things.

You may be interested in checking out this you tube piece courtesy of Benson. Our very own "Homicide" Williams has a cameo appearance.

Another piece that I peruse every week is a journo by the name of Jason King. I find his "King of the Road" column a good read all the time. He even spares some column space to the Aussies playing over there. Got to like that.

I'm sure I will be able to fill the rest of my time in very easily, I have three children!

No free beer, but the running between wickets went well. Hope to be much improved in the field this week!
