City League Winter Championship Basketball Game
(Sunday February 21, 2010)
By the time we arrived the game was already moving along. Tonight the two top teams in the City League are competing for the championship. It's Demartini RV versus Papa Lee's. It should be an exciting game.
Every now and then we hear a painful groan when someone misses the ball.
Again I have to say how fast, coordinated and strong both team's players are to get this far in the league playoffs. It's really fun to watch them.

These players are really good, and Tim's taking a video for posterity.
Not long before his shot, this exhausted player lay down and yelled how these guys were pretty tough on him.
It's really close, and not much time left. Time out for a last minute talk from Tim.
And the 2010 City League winter season champions are....DeMartini Rv 69...Papa Lee 62. Both teams played a great game. There's always a winner and a loser, but they're really both winners.
The happy team and their trophy. Congratulations for playing an exciting game and a great season!
And of course...here are the fans.
It's been a fun evening. The team and fans are going to celebrate at Perko's, but unfortunately, tonight we have to be somewhere else.
