I referee high school basketball. Absolutely love it. The sportsmanship. The national anthem. The constant challenge. Camaraderie with fellow officials. Tossing the ball for the opening tip. It’s a great game, and I constantly find things to inform my writing.
And sometimes, magic happens. Special nights, against all odds, both teams win. I didn’t do the game that’s linked here – it was played in El Paso – but oh man, you’ll be so glad you watched this. Long as you’re okay with a tear or two.
