I want my money back

Tonight I went to a high school basketball game. It has been a while since I've been to one of these events. I think the last one I had been to before tonight was last year watching my brother.

Fruitport @ Reeths Puffer. The stadium holds up near 2500 people I would say... I think 30 showed up.

$10 was the price of admission for two and evidently for the most uninspiring basketball I think I've ever seen... at least at the varsity level... Almost 3 minutes went by in the game and there were at least 5 missed shots by both teams before the first points were scored. I'm not talking 3 literal minutes here... I mean three minutes off of the game clock.

It was 20-10 at halftime and everyone in the stands somehow knew the game was already out of reach... I left in the third quarter.

This is Division I high school basketball? I would have rather watched retarded monkeys trying to walk straight... at least that would have been entertaining.

I want my money back.

Fortunately, better games are ahead... March 26: Pistons Nuggets. I'll be there.
