Dad's advice for the girls' first basketball game

The Twofer are playing basketball and their first game is this weekend! This is going to be a great opportunity to learn about playing being a team player, good sportsmanship, and why it's important to practice.

The Mister had some words of advice for their first game.

I was so moved by them, I had to share with you.

Hip Check

"When boxing out, it never hurts to throw a little hip check to clear your opponent out."


Throwing Elbows

"After grabbing a rebound, throwing elbows in both directions will make defenders less likely to try and get the ball from you."


Hot sauce

"Put a little hot sauce, or other eye irritant, on your elbows."


But seriously...

Can you imagine if anyone took him seriously what that game would look like? Can't you just see the blank stares on the faces of their teammates (all 7 and 8 year old girls) if was to seriously give them THAT speech before the game?

So, what would your advice be?
