Something Thankful: Basketball in Autumn
We're looking forward to another wonderful Spurs season.
I adore the Spurs. No. We are not from Texas. We just like them. And we both adore basketball. I also adore poetry. And autumn. I wish my poetry was as wonderful as Sherman Alexie's, but who am I kidding?
For some basketball poetry, read Alexie's "Defending Walt Whitman." I also enjoy Naomi Shihab Nye's collection Honeybee (she mentions Duncan in the intro), and a poem called "Old Men Playing Basketball," but the author escapes me right now.
Thank you autumn for Manu Ginobli, Tim Duncan, and, I suppose, Tony Parker.
Thank you for The Post and their NBA league pass.
Thank you for the park, a dribble and a pass away.
Thank you for my charming husband and charming bulldog.
Thank you, autumn, for basketball.
