The Great Plotnik

Thanks, Big O

Orlando got us the gym on Treasure Island. So we're playing this Saturday and hopefully more Saturdays after that. Playing inside is S O O O O much easier on the joints, cartilage, bones, muscles and fat than outside on that evil concrete with the potholes in it. Plottie is excited.

Orlando was probably the best player of all, back in the day -- so smooth, never excited, and also unstoppable. If you were open, he got you the ball in the perfect spot at the exact moment you wanted it.

Now, after a few surgeries and plain old Father Time, no one moves like they used to. But you still can't stop Orlando when he puts his mind to it.

Plotnik, on the other hand, is not only stoppable but he's hard to start. Once he gets going, though, anything can happen. Well, not anything -- a few things. A very few things. He can make some good passes.

I first read "playing inside" as meaning you were "playing center," which seemed a bit unlikely. Indoors should be a lot more forgiving - but stay away from playing center. That can get a bit rough.
