Well this weekend is Hoopfest, one of Spokane's four
yearly BFDs. It is billed as the largest 3-on-3 basketball
tournament in the U.S. And it probably is, given it
comprises almost 7,000 teams and 14,000 games, played
on hundreds of improvised courts in the downtown area.
It will last until Sunday night, when it will all come
down to four teams — two each in the Men's and Women's
brackets — battling it out on center court.
For the time being, you can check out some of the
action here. They do have very brief breaks between
games so if you hit one of those stop back a few
After Sunday though you will probably just get a
Department of Transportation traffic webcam. :p
Woyers? :lol:I know it`s written different but anyway…. 😛
Sounds like a regular party going on up there, Edward. Save me a seat!:lol::heart:
:lol:My guess is that Res Woyers stands for "Reservation Warriors". And that Ballerz stands for, uh, Ballers. I've been trying to think of a team name if I were to join. Haven't come up with anything definitive yet.
That would be lots of fun to just go and watch all the people, if nothing else.:D:heart:
Well since you're coming I feel kinda bad I just added the Seagals photo. Don't worry — I'll close my eyes while they perform. :heart:
@ Star. They had the Seagals, the cheerleaders/dancers for the Seattle Seahawks football team there between two of the games. If I had known that they would be there I might have walked down. And of course I just happened to have that photo handy. :pI went one year and it was SO crowded. Any little shop you went to would be flooded, restaurants with lines and waiting lists, and basically no place to sit around most courts — center court has bleachers, the rest you just stand on the sidelines or pull out a folding chair. The weather was perfect for it, though. I'm very happy for the players and spectators because of that.
Oh good grief, Edward. You can watch. I'll be watching, too, anyway. I almost always watch a good dance team.:heart:
They had other dance and gymnadstic groups besides the Seagals. You wouldn't have been bored.Sorry to be sensitive. My last girlfriend would have thought that I wanted to do every oone of the Seagals. Or, perhpas already had done all of the Seagals.:heart:
It's okay. I'm not a jealous/envious kind of person, although very few people know or believe that about me. It's kinda hard to overcome preconceptions sometimes, whether it comes from someone's own past experiences with others, or from rumors or gossip about someone you don't know personally.Can be a scary thing to try, too, sometimes.I'm sorry if my words seemed insensitive to your sensitivity, too. Didn't mean it that way. And I wouldn't hurt your feelings for anything.:heart:
I didn't think you meant to. And given that there is not one single thing to justify it, I would never think that.Is that what they call "trust"? It is late here. Woke up and couldn't go back to sleep.You are my solace in the stillness of the night.:D:heart:
I'm really impressed with your expressions of passion Star and Ed!I had no idea the anticipation of 14,000 basketballs games could generate such heat and the revelation of deep feelings.:flirt: :yes: 😎
Okay, Carlo. That'll be enough of that. :p:lol:
Oh well as long as we are putting our feelings out on the line, so to speak, I might as well admit it now I hate Basketball. 😀
LMAO.Duly noted. "Carlo hates basketball…"😀
You guys are nuts.:rolleyes::lol::heart:
