my husband and i don’t really engage ourselves that much when it comes to sports, especially the kind where one will produce that much sweat and run all over the place..

but in our village, there’s this league that my husband and his friends would join, its like their seasonal “for the men” thingy, Basketball… this is when they would get together and be happy enough if they would be able to make a few shots of the ball to the net maybe for a couple of times, and here is the funny part, my husband and his group of friends from our village, most of them are already married, so what happens with me and the other wives so with our kids? We become the “Cheerleaders” of the team…

Our kids would shout every time one of the “fathers” on the our team would hold the ball and run inside the court. there are times the kids would make remarks on how their dads play and if they saw that one of the players get hurt of pushed, Us, the moms, would have to go and stop our kids from getting inside the court to hit whoever pushed their dad/s..

As if their father/s don’t do the same to the other team..

The basketball games usually take place at the big vacant lot that also serves as a parking lot at night for the homeowners. There, they placed two basketball nets and have the games happen every afternoon of every weekends. This also serves as the time for our neighbors and friends to be together and be able to share a couple of stories and events about their lives.. I must say that even if we don’t take each game that seriously, we cherish each moment. It allows everyone in the village to be open to other people and allows me to meet new friends, since i don’t really grew up in this community.

As for my husband and his team mates i can say that despite their age difference from the players and other teams, they sure play well, there are times the they make 3 point shots in a row and be unified at that very game.

Currently the team has a standing of w2-L3 in their games. my husband said they are not expecting much,and they just want to play, well that’s good. But honestly im looking forward to watching him play every week. maybe because im also proud at how he does he’s thing inside the court. Their games also give me the chance of showing my husband how proud i am of him and that i support in everything he does…

I must be honest that even if this ballgames are a seasonal thing for Us, its something that we give importance to because of what it does and gives Us outside the game and the court.
