December 22, 2007...Saturday afternoon...day after another loss...when we shoulda, coulda and woulda won...but during this Holiday weekend, I'm not about to go into THAT...No, I've decided to give you a little Christmas Cheer from Coldchun City, China...

This is a "jingle" I came up with to describe life on the streets here in Changchun...

Jingle Honks

Jingle honks jingle honks jingle all the way...oh what fun it is to sprint through an open 4 wide lanes...hey...jingle honks jingle honks jingle all the way...oh what fun it is today to avoid another car...hey...Dashing through the lanes, on my way across the street...looking left and right, scared beyond all fright...All the cars and Taxis, angle for a lane, never minding walkers whose life is in their wheels, that makes you want to scream ....ohhhh jingle honks jingle honks jingle all the way...oh what fun it is to sprint in a stagger run of cars...hey...jingle honks jingle honks jingle all the way....

Here is my Christmas Wish to all of my basketball Family in North America, Belgium, West Indies, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Belgrade, Canada, Guatemala and China, I truly wish each of you and your Families the warmest and most caring time together this Holiday Season..one that allows reflection and thankfulness for all the many blessings of the previous year in your Family sports life and personal lives...I know that there are those who have suffered the loss of a Family member and/or relative, experienced hardships that are private and sensitive, but through all of your adversity, the most important reflection is that you have each other in your lives today, and that this moment of warm gathering togetherness, is not "wrapped" nor is it consumed, but rather is a "Spiritual" bond that hopefully allows the healing to continue and you may rejoice in the magic of life...God Bless all, safe travels and I sincerely wish each and everyone one of you a Happy New ALL Year...You all have given me so much of your time and kindness in supporting the vision of what FamilySportslifetoday.com wishes to share with you... Thank you...Sincerely, Coach tom...and my "wish" for a Stat sheet may be fulfilled...

Less I forget: we travel on Christmas as the looooooonnnnnnnng road beckons our "choir" for a visit to another Chinese city...I hope to blog to you all on Christmas Eve with words that will make you chuckle and shake your head, remembering that I may be in a strange land and going through an interesting basketball experience, but I still have my sense of humor intact, albeit a "lil different" than most...hah!!!
