I felt the need for a high quality basketball game with a crazy atmosphere (Michelle was more than willing to join when I offered to go to Chili's, her restaurant of choice).
Lawrence North has six players who are committed to attending big name college basketball schools (One of them actually played JV alongside a 7 footer! Both on JV!). Lawrence North is the school that produced Greg Oden, Mike Conley, and Eric Montross to name a few. To say that parents move so their kids can play at LN would probably be accurate, although some suggest they illegally recruit. Either way, it's ridiculous.
North Central is no slouch (they beat LN earlier this year) and have had 3 Mr. Basketball's in the last 10 years. Two years ago, we went to the same game to watch Eric Gordon dominate.
Speaking of Eric Gordon, he had 41 points last night in the NBA. In fact, according to this story, his teammates don't let him participate in shooting competitions due to his ridiculous range.
Then on Saturday night we went to Greenfield's "Cougar Cuisine," a fundraiser where around 15 local restaurants offer food to stuff yourself with (they donate the food, tickets are sold for $10). Good times...How often do you get to eat Honey BBQ wings, Donuts, Chicken Alfredo, Steak tips, Ice Cream, and Pizza in one meal? The answer, of course, is once a year.
