As I've mentioned once or twice, I'm quite friendly with the Angel of Death. He is an avid Hearts player and has put off taking me in until he finally defeats me. We play quite often, although I remain the undisputed Champion of the Lehigh Valley Hearts League. The Angel of Death also enjoys basketball. Thanks to him, I was able to see Parkland play Northampton last week in the Districts at PPL Center. I sat about 200' away from the nearest person, except for the Angel of Death. He's invisible, so no one noticed him.
What a game!
Northampton started out like gangbusters and had a 15-2 lead against Parkland before they knew what had hit them. But I have to hand it to the Trojans. They hung in there and clawed their way back to win the game. What particularly impressed me is that they played as a team. Parkland usually has one or two hoopers, and the team strategy is just to pass the ball to him. Although freshman Nick Coval will likely be in that category next year, he was very selfless and other-oriented. That's the way they all rolled.
I have to thank a Northampton fan who paid for my parking after I went into the wrong garage and was unable to back out. Very classy.
My grandson's college team is playing and doing well, but it's a very short season and we've had to watch on the Internet instead of in-person. No March Madness for D2 or D3 schools. I feel bad for the athletes and coaches.
