On a roll

{Shaun in his 'John Stockton' shorts, he has requested larger ones thankfully}

    As much as I would like to say that soaking up the sun and just enjoying the south of France is the reason we are here, or our profession if you will, I can't. Basketball is the reason we are here. The season started a week ago and with 2 games under their belt, the team is rolling with a 2-0 record and a win margin of 29.5 pts a game. In other words, they are a fun team to watch, which is such a nice change from last year's, ummm how do I say this nicely, forgettable season. Being an athlete myself (or former athlete I should say since my body reminds me almost daily of the pounding it took for so many years), I understand that a season is long and there will be ups and downs along the way. So we will enjoy these highs while they are here. And one of the many awesome things this year is the photographer from the team has so kindly offered to give us pics after each game so we can share them with family and/or Shaun can look back on them in 10 years while playing Bruce Springsteen's 'Glory days'...the options are limitless. Hey, we all need a little ego boost some time or another, right? All photos by Romain Robini, thanks Romain, you are the best!!!
