Who realized basketball clothes were so unflattering

September 10th, 2015 | Uncategorized

Meg and myself have been traveling to different schools, basically putting on mini clinics for the students. We have gone to some pretty nice schools, private schools around town, as well as schools in some disadvantage areas. Today was a day in the disadvantaged area.


What I will say about the less advantaged schools, is that these kids bring A LOT of personality. They may not always be the most well behaved or the easiest to coach, but they sure do make Meg and I laugh. One of the many stories from these coaching sessions is when a 10 year old felt the need to give me love advice. While attempting to keep a class focused on dribbling drills, a 10 year old boy looks me up and down, and asks, “excuse me, do you always dress in basketball clothes?” Because of how politely he asked, and how out of nowhere his question was, I decided to entertain him and answered “when I’m playing basketball I do.” I had not realized what I just set myself up for. He proceeds to ask how I look in normal clothes, which I then explain that I would guess I look better in them. He then, what I think seems somewhat randomly, asks if I have a boyfriend; when I tell him “uhhh, no?”, he proceeds to look me up and down and then concludes to himself “well…..I hate to say this, but that’s why you don’t.” …………..guess I’m not a ‘sweat pants, chilling with no make-up on’ type of a gal. #DrakeLyricsComingInHandy
