Today was the third stop of Le Tour de Houston, at the place it all started, Charlton Park. We had some great games and most of the regular hoopers from Charlton Park were present along with a few extra hoopers from the group that have played with us before at other parks.
One of the introductions to Le Tour de Houston, is the next tracker, an idea thought of my good friend, Miguel “Poopy” Olveda who proposed it after we stopped by a park and it was pretty much impossible to find out who had next since everyone was clueless saying the typical “That guy had next, I just know I’m last, but that other guy had next before me..etc..” which is really just a whiteboard that everyone puts down their name and this time nobody was fighting figuring out who was next to play. Devante one of the daily hoopers at Charlton, , tried to steal a game after saying he had next even after knowing we started using the next tracker… but nobody was buying that anymore since we had an official way of keeping who played next.
Shout out to everyone that stopped by and played at least one game. Devante Anderson, Nestor “Fiesta” Garza, John Flores, Adriann Valenzuela, Eduardo Campos, Chris Uno, Kevin Tran, Alexander Cheek, Gary Johnson, Rudy Ortega, Miguel “Poopy” Olveda, Philip Ethridge, Pajama man, Kwami, Wesley, Desmaine Yelling
After the games, Chris Uno and myself played a 1 vs 1 up to 7 points. We have been talking on Facebook to see who would win and finally decided to play a quick game which I lost after I was bested 7 to 0, of course I’m a man of my word and we went to dine out at night and had some good laughs. The next stop is this Wednesday at Mason Park March 2nd from 7pm to 9pm. Hit us up on Facebook or meet us there.
