Girmindl's Ghost

A diary of Shaker High School's 2005-2006 basketball season, a retelling of Shaker's fabled 1979-1980 season, and general commentary on high school hoops, updated daily...

"I like sitting in the back row. I found that sitting against the wall is just easier on your back." -Dean Smith, on the comfort of the H-gym bleachers

Who are you?

Who am I?: My name is Matt. I grew up in Loudonville, went to Southgate for elementary school, and went to Shaker for high school. I graduated in 1996. I went to Hamilton College and currently I am finishing a Ph.D. in political science from Yale University.

My wife Sarah is also a graduate of Shaker (1997). After we got married last year, we decided to move back to the area, since my wife is a teacher and I could finish my dissertation without being in residence at Yale. We live only a few miles from Shaker, making our attendance at basketball games virtually mandatory.

I never played school basketball past 8th grade, as my more natural winter sports' talents lay on the indoor track. But I did spend most of my Tuesday and Friday nights between 1991 and 1996 watching basketball games at Shaker from the top rows of the student section in the new gym. Now that we have moved back to the area, I have resumed my attendance at the games.
