Hi John!It is great to see that you are blogging this holiday. Like you, I absolutely love to play basketball. In fact, Aronui (my son) and I often play basketball at our house because we have our own hoop and our own ball. I saved up the money to buy the basketball because I love playing so much! I started playing at the age of 9 and I haven't really stopped!I actually grew up in a small town in Canada called Almonte. It is the birthplace of the inventor of basketball, Dr James Naismith. I always find it amazing to think that I come from the same town as Dr Naismith but it does explain why everyone in town learns how to play b-ball when they're young!I hope that you're having fun playing ball this holiday.
