And Now... Your Annual Teacher Humiliation Ritual

Have ended up taking a few days off here, as various projects swamp the end-of-year teacher. And can't post much today, as I can't miss an all-important practice for....wait for it....

The Staff/Student Basketball Game

And yes, "Staff/Student Basketball Game" is actually Hungarian for "Ultimate Humiliation of Old People". It's also Finnish for "Reliving Horrible Teen Experiences While Physically Incapable of Even Being Able to Do the Things You Weren't Any Good at Even when a Teenager".

The game is like a reverse therapy session. Or a primal scream therapy session in front of 500 nascent teens filled with boredom and/or vicious hatred. Or both. Now that I think about it, I've always wondered who came up with the whole "Staff/Student Basketball Game" concept and I'm pretty sure it was some sort of psychologists marketing committee trying to drum up more business.

Anyway, time to get ready for my annual 0-9 shooting, ten turnovers and assorted muscle pulls. No video cameras, please.

Have a good weekend, everybody.
