Huge Day in Miami Hoops!


Move over big three.

Today the Miami Mega Heat of the Beth Am basketball league for 3rd and 4th graders will play in the semi-final and hopefully the final game of the spring season. The game that propelled them further into playoff bore an eerily similar resemblance to a recent Miami Heat game.  First a forced overtime period and the game was decided then with the Mega Heat prevailing. So on that day there were two rounds of parental angina, but happily everyone survived.

Today, there are at least four teams of 8 and 9 year olds with big dreams of taking it all home. And countless others on playgrounds and in in parks all around the United States. I hope they play our National Anthem like they did here. What a moving moment for all of us.

God bless our children. And God bless our men and women in uniform who provide us with the blanket of freedom to play today.

Go Heat!

    Go Team! And go Dad! Making wonderful memories. I can see it in their faces. Thank you for the reminder to appreciate our military every day. We take so much for granted.
