Revisiting the Losers

The Losers were my intramural high school basketball team.  We had a lot of fun, but not much success, going a crispy 1-6.  We didn't score a lot (nor did we stop our opponents from scoring a lot), but that just made Jim Fisher's job easier.
Jim was our designated scorekeeper and probably our biggest fan.  I believe I invited him to join our team, but he declined, instead offering to keep score.  That was great, since we couldn't spare any of our players to perform that duty.  We needed every reasonably able body on the court.
I lost all contact with Jim shortly after graduation.  I'd love to know what the mighty Fish is doing.  Hopefully, he is well and enjoying life.  Jim was one of the good guys.
