Hoopfest

Mary and I walked downtown through the sweltering heat to catch a few Hoopfest games early this afternoon. That was a hot, but enjoyable way to spend an hour and a half. Most of the teams I wanted to watch managed to win their first two games and were done for the day by the time we left. We’ll have to get an earlier start tomorrow.

One thing I should mention about the Hoopfest site is that it makes great use of Flash in generating fully printable up to date tournament brackets. So it’s really easy to look up a player, find his team, where they play and how they’ve been doing.

In other basketball related news, yesterday Mary, my mom, and I drove down to Yakima for the Washington State high school All-Star game. The red team I was helping coach won, but former Ferris player Erik Benzel didn’t have a very good shooting night. Overall it was a fun evening sandwiched in between two long 3.5 hour drives.

It’s nice to finally have time on the weekend to do some computing again.
