Finding a Home
Let’s be honest. If we could, we would play football all year-round. Unfortunately, as those of us at the Daily News Sports Department can attest to from attending Wednesday’s playoff games, such a practice would be border-line inhumane. Weather controls us all. It alters our behaviors, moods and practices, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing.
What the stormy weather on Wednesday night indicated to me is that it is time to move sports in doors, and there is plenty to be excited about. Basketball has been my favorite sport to play since I was 5 years old. You can argue otherwise if you like, but basketball seems to be the only game where it doesn’t matter what you look like or how big you are. All that matters is “can you ball?”
Last year, I arrived when basketball season was in full swing. My first game covered was a Newton girls’ game, and aside from being alarmed at the lack of a shot clock, it was an event that brought some comfort for me, someone who had just uprooted his entire life and moved 2,000 miles northeast.
