Not every lay-up, swish, or even block needs to be accompanied by an animal like grunt and various words most likely spoken in tongues. You could just give someone a high five and say “way to go!” It doesn’t have to be all dramatics. Sometimes being subtle is a much more intense sense of leadership. And I know, whoever you are, want to lead your pick up game team to an easy 21 points. Or maybe 15 or 11 if you were strapped for time. But I know you weren’t, because it was kind of late (past 10) and it just seemed like it was getting going. So I hope you played to at least 21. Because your yells, the constant drone of a rubber ball bouncing, and my pounding head ache would never want to be in vain.
