I have written a few posts about the Losers, my intramural basketball team back at Mt. Carmel High School. As the name suggests, we were not very good, but we had a lot of fun.
I don't remember why I even put together a team. At a school like Mt. Carmel, clearly we would be at a disadvantage athletically. None of us played any varsity sports. Some of us played a year or 2 on various teams in our 1st and 2nd year. I gimped my way through one season of track, for instance.
Anyway, I decided I wanted to put together a team and I wanted my closest friends, of course. The team consisted of Tom Skalski (a friend since 1st grade), Keith Urbon, Greg Nessinger, Mike Szotek, Dave Plonczynski, John Fleszewski, Todd Kruk, Jim Fisher and me.
We went 1-6, winning our only game on a forfeit. We lost our 1st game 70-8. but vastly improved over the season, losing our last game only 42-18.
