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

Wanted: pictures

Hit me with your best shot: I may have spent a lot of time this year watching, writing, and thinking about Shaker basketball, but one thing I didn't do was take a lot of picutures. That's a shame, because both high school basketball and blogging lend themselves well to the visual arts. And what's a diary of a season if it doesn't have a photo recap at the end of it? I mean, I could at least have had the forsight to photograph all the visiting concession stands, right?

So, here's a request: if you have any pictures of Shaker hoops from this season - game shots, 6th man shots, casual team pictures, whatever - email them to me when you get the chance. And if you like taking pictures, start blasting away during the postseason, and send those in too. And if you can, put the caption to each pic in the email if it's not obvious.

Because sometimes a picture - like this badass shot of Brad about to take the tip as the mighty 6th man looks on from above - is worth a lot more than 1000 words on a blog:

Moments before the tip, vs. Colonie (1/13/06)
[claim credit if you took this shot!]

P.S. - If you actually have pictures of the visiting concession stands, I'd like those too.
