This is Drew doing what he loves best, shooting hoops. We have mentioned this before, but Drew spends at least an hour everyday on his basketball court dreaming of epic games. After we got the new hoop, we never had a real basketball. But, we did have a very nice kids size soccer ball that worked great. It bounced well, was the perfect size, it was not too heavy, and it was soft. But, soccer balls are not made to be used as basketballs, especially not for hours on end. Therefore, the soccer ball has slowly deteriorated. First, the plastic came off the outside, then the inside foam part start crumbling, then a crack formed, and now it is barely holding itself together. I told Drew that I wanted to take a picture of the po' boy with ragged ball to engender sympathy. But, the best part of the story is that he doesnt even really know that he deserves any sympathy or that he has a trashy basketball and seems mostly content tossing his rag ball into the basket.
