It went down tonight at the Filhoops Gym in Spring Branch. This gym was first introduced to me by Andy Treviño who is one of our fellow Houston Streetball members and reserved it for us for the night so we can play some basketball at night. As the only gym on the tour, it was expected to get packed. By the time I got there there was plenty of people waiting anxiously for games to get started, but the good thing Andy had access to the timer and we were able to set the game clock to 12 minutes and we had the portable scoreboard and the next tracker to keep games organized.
The first game was a couple of guys who came solo and got put on a mix team and thus had to play against a team who have played plenty with each other. The game of course went by pretty quick as the mixed team got skunked 7-0, and had to walk off humiliated, I won’t say any names but the look on their face said it all, frustration. The rest of the games were pretty evenly matched and there was some great hooping going on tonight. It was definitely our best turn out yet and the word is spreading around of Le Tour de Houston.
I want to thank everyone that came out tonight and showed up. I saw a lot new faces and a couple of familiar faces from earlier in the week at Agnes Park. They are only four more spots left in the tour this summer and they are all this week with the next one being this Tuesday at Amity Park followed by Blossom Heights Park on Wednesday and Burnett Park on Friday and we finish at Cottage Grove Park on Sunday. Make sure to come out and spread the word.
