The man to the right is Rafer Alston, playground basketball legend and
point guard for the Toronto Raptors. He's been an inspiration to me during my tortured basketball career. Someday I'll blog on that. For now, though, I'm excited to go play some ball with my buddy Will. Something so cleansing, so energizing, so pure about getting out and playing ball. Particularly in this adult life I find myself trapped in, where I sit for hours multiple by factors of four. When you're a kid, exercise isn't really play. It's pretty much your job. You get older, and sit in front of a screen or professor for eight hours--it's play, baby, and it's glorious.
