Yes, the Omar met me on the local school grounds for a showdown of round balling.

It was an epic struggle with the margin of victory being only one point. I won’t take anything away from Omar’s game, but that bastard is 5’8. He’s the hispanic Yao Ming to my Earl Boykins. Still, I was surprised with how well he played after a ten year lay-off. Hopefully, another ten years doesn’t go by between now and our next game. I may not have knees by then.

Luckily, Omar avoided Meany’s mistake and opted to dress comfortably instead of as a “balla.” I just couldn’t have handled it if he’d shown up in a Rony Seikaly throwback or something.
