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 ...

Basketball vs Netball

Posted by:

Cause this had to happen at some point.

For all my American peeps, you need to know what netball is before you can really get into this post. Well, because I still don’t know how to explain the sport, wikipedia it. Thanks.

Anyways, netball sort of dominates the hoop sports in this country for women, what I mean by that is, of all the primary schools I have coached at so far, 3 have had basketball hoops and all of them have ...

Accents

Posted by:

A question I get a lot from British people is if I can understand their accents or if I like them. Most of the time if I try hard enough I can catch the gist of what people are saying if they aren’t speaking too fast. Usually I kind of just stand there with a smile on my face and nod my head as if I know what’s going on. No one should feel bad, I do the same thing ...

Injury Update

Posted by:

Before I give my injury update, I need to speak about the awful tragedy that took place today. After sitting in the editing suite at Hallam for 7 and a half hours, I walked out of the university to find myself in a blizzard (and by blizzard I mean it was snowing regularly and not sticking to the ground). I was carrying two cameras, a tripod and a stereo microphone so I could bless every one on Tuesday with some ...
