The Contest
Toine called me up this week and asked if I wanted to be included in a contest he had heard about on Elliot in the Morning. Every day – beginning Feb 1 – everyone in the contest must do a situp, a pushup and a squat (I get the feeling Toine added the squat for personal reasons). Additionally, another round of exercises must be added for each day. So, on Feb 2, we must all do 2 situps, 2 pushups, and 2 squats, etc. The contest is going strong into day 4 with Stever, Brandon, Toine and I all still in it! I’ll keep you abreast of the details as they come!

Week 3: State of the Zog
I’m already done with a third of my 3-on-3 basketball regular season, so along with an update on this week’s games I will include a brief report on how I’m doing, individually. In the mens league, team Time Out had its normally sub-par performance. I forgot to record two of the four games, but after it was all said and done, I wasn’t too sorry I missed them. We went 0-4 and got our asses handed to us pretty handily.

Here’s how I’m faring on my mens team:

Averages 1.7 2.3 0.3 1.2 0.0 2.5 16.1% 0.3
Place on Team 3rd 3rd 3rd 1st 2nd 6th 3rd 4th

This puts me solidly as the third best person on the team. Sure, that’s not bad on a six man team, but when you realize two people haven’t played at all my real position becomes a little clearer. I need to focus so much on my rebounds, because when I don’t I just wait for the ball to come to me. Watching the video has really started to make me realize I need to be trying so much more.

Over in my coed league, the Lonerz were up to their usual performance as well: winning at least half of our games. I didn’t earn any Player of the Game honors this time as well (though I did earn a Stinker of the Game). However, watching the video, I realized my play is becoming a lot steadier.

Here’s the State of the Stanus on the Lonerz:

Amazingly, this ties me for first place on the entire team! Still, watching the video I notice I could do so much more on the boards. My rebounding woes continue to haunt me in this league as well. Next week I’m really going to try and focus solely on putting all my effort into rebounds. I’ll even give up shots to try to learn how to get better positioning down low! Toine to the future!
