I was never the best player on the floor when I played basketball growing up. And I was seldom the best athlete. But I always hustled….
Yeah. I was THAT guy. The one the coaches couldn’t figure out anything to compliment besides my hustle, work ethic, promptness for practice, etc… It was the worst.
So needless to say, despite being 6’3, I’ve never dunked a basketball. Never even got close. On good days I can graze the rim with my outstretched arm. On bad days I miss altogether. But on any day, I’m no Michael Jordan.
Therein lies my New Year’s Resolution. It’s more of a quest, than a resolution really. I’ve wanted to do this my whole life, only now I’m planning on acting on it. This blog is going to serve as my chronicle and motivation to one day (hopefully sooner than later) dunk a basketball. At age 26, it’ll be an uphill battle.
