Bump. Whadda ya gonna do?
After going 7-0 in the first half of the double round robin indoor season, the (mostly) re-united X-Men have been asked/told to not play the second half of the season because they won all their games by embarassing margins, even though they sometimes loaned the opposing team their better players in blowouts.
In fact, the X-Men only gave up three goals in seven games, two of them by X-Men on loan against their own team. The kids say it is confusing to remember which team they are playing for at the moment when they keep changing jersey going in and out.
These boys are 11 turning 12 and have been playing up a year since they were nine. Now they are trying to find a league to play in.
The upside is, I don't have to get up for any more 0700 Saturday games.
The really good news is Charley Lonewolf was cleared to return to action for the last five games after being sidelined for six weeks by a concussion suffered when he was mugged going up for layup after stealing the ball. He had to remain absolutely inactive, no reading, TV or physical activity for two weeks, was allowed to return to school after CAT scan but still having headaches/double vision and no physical activity. After another round of neurologists and congnitive exams he was finally cleared to play soccer but no basketball yet. He got pretty tired the first game back but says he is 100% now..and plays like it.
