Jess and I went to the Y today to play basketball. We played for about an hour, and she must have taken 500 shots. It was a no nonsense Jess. Grab the ball, throw her body at the basket, and shoot. It was like watching Larry Bird during a 3 point contest in the '80s.
I was teaching her how to shoot from different angles. She would take a bunch of shots in that one spot, and then move on to the next one. And if she missed a few shots in a row, she had the Eli Manning look - which is to say, no reaction at all. But she made a lot more than she missed.
After an hour she said she was tired. She should have been - she shot for an hour straight! But I guess she had a great time. She wants to go again tomorrow.
