Today we hit up one of the parks for Le Tour de Houston in the historical east end district of Houston, De Zavala Park, aka DZP. This park has a great surface almost identical to the blacktop in downtown and provides excellent grip. The weather was awesome with it being around the low 70’s all through out the evening and very little wind affecting the direction of the basketball.
One of the introductions of our tour is the next tracker, with people not knowing who is next, it was crucial that we started keeping track of who is up next after a game, there was many people today that showed up so it came very useful. The locals at De Zavala Park where wondering what the hell we were doing with it, however they kind of liked the idea of keeping score and keeping count of the upcoming games.
The first main team to play today was the likes of Ryan C, Chris Uno, Devante Anderson, and Za Bolden. They ended up winning the first game vs some of the locals who weren’t ready. The second game they played was against Roman (local guy there), myself, LaChad, and one other guy who I can’t remember… we ended up losing that game however the game was a lot closer, Devante was getting pretty hot during that game and shooting some contested three pointers (2pts) against me. There was plenty of great games today, and we had a full house today, I would say today has been the best day yet for our tour.
I want to thank everyone that came out today and especially making this 1st edition of Le Tour Houston a success. In the group picture is Devante Anderson, Ezequiel “Zeke” Galvan, Alexander “Cheeks” Cheek IV, Adrian Valenzuela, Kevin Tran, Chris Uno, Philip Ethridge, Za “Lovingherforever” Bolden, Tremaine Lewis, Jesus “jebuz” Acevedo, LaChad Holmes, Carlos Ortiz, Corin, Nestor “Fiesta” Garza (not in picture), Ryan Cathcart (not in picture)
We are going to rest a few days and the next stop continues the following Monday, at Settegast Park, until then keep calm and #houstonstreetball.
