Cycling 101

Posted by:

In America, I come from a very small town. When I ride my bike at home, I tend not to care or pay attention to where I am riding because it never really mattered. We have aproximately 7 traffic lights and one street houses our entire “downtown” area, post office, police station, fire station and all. Here in Sheffield things are much different.

I am very aware that I break nearly every single regulation when it comes to cycling in this ...

Sabra Wrice’s Tips for a Successful Season Overseas

Agree to disagree…

1. Pack your favorite foods. I don’t care if you did research and you found that they sell your favorite food in the country you are going to play in, it probably won’t taste the same… There is a reason America has the highest obesity rate.

2. You can’t hang with Europeans when it comes to partying. First off, beer in America is 2 parts water, 1 part alcohol ...

Busy, Busy, Busy, Sleep.

Posted by:

I am sure you have all been wondering where I have been. Its been a while since I have actually had time to post, also my computer died a little and it took me three days to resurrect it (no pun intended). Well these past couple of weeks have been very busy and if I wasn’t busy I was trying to sneak in naps (that always turn in two 4-5 hours worth of sleep/wasted time). If you don’t know by ...

Translator

Posted by:

Hello again my dear friends. I have decided to write up a small dictionary to help translate some of the things us basketball players and coaches say. Enjoy!

Players

“She’s not that nice (or good)”: Really, whoever said person is, she is indeed very good, talented even. She is probably one of the top players in the league but because she’s not on my team, I’m not going to admit that.

“I played awful today”: Scored about 20+ points, had 7 ...

The Pedestrian

Posted by:

Pedestrian

When I first entered England, one of my friends tried to teach me how to drive. After hyperventilating at a roundabout and then watching her almost drive her car into her apartment building because I left it in gear, it became clear I was destined to be a pedestrian in this country. I walk or take public transportation almost everywhere and its weird because I try my best to avoid public transportation in America. Anyways, when I first got to ...

Weekend Off?

Posted by:

As many of you know, this weekend one of our games was not confirmed and the other one was cancelled. This is always a weird sort of moment for basketball players. We always wish for more free time to do things but then we get the free time unexpectedly and we never have a clue what to do with. Well, lucky for you all I have compiled a list of activities to do if this ever occurs again:

Sleep – this ...

Basketball Friends

Posted by:

I’m awkward. Most people know that about me by now.

When we were kids, my brother and I would always see other kids playing basketball or a sport and with me being older than him, I should have been the one to go and ask people if we could join in but for some reason, I always sent my brother. I barely speak when I first meet people most of the time because I never know what to say.

Playing basketball has ...

Coach Wrice III

Posted by:

Only cause my Grandfather is the original Coach Wrice, then my dad and uncles…

Lately, I’ve been doing a lot of coaching in primary schools around Sheffield and I must say, I really do enjoy it. I never used to be good around kids because I’m not that assertive and so usually a few minutes after meeting people’s children I am getting beat up in a grocery store by 7 year olds or having my shoes stolen by a bunch of ...

Lovely Teammates

Posted by:

We have all had that teammate who…

Takes 45 minutes to put their uniform (kit) on comes in midway through the warm-up, warms up for 3-4 minutes and then goes to sit on the bench and says, “I can’t warm-up for that long, it’s too much.”

Sits in a timeout staring at the coach and then when the time out is over walks out on court and asks someone else what she/he just said. Apparently appearing to pay attention is just good ...
