Believe me, you and I both are hoping there are no more snow days the rest of this season.
Snow days are all good and fun when you’re a student — no school, “Yay!” — but not necessarily when you’re a winter athlete and especially not when you’re an adult in the workplace. Snow days (on workdays) are simply inconveniences and giant metaphorical wrenches into the pot that is our daily lives.
Rant over. Back to business.
Nancy Haggerty is covering Horace Greeley-Ossining. The Yonkers tournament, which was postponed Tuesday, has been pushed to today. Suffern will also host its Rich Bosco Memorial tournament this afternoon. Before you get to the full schedule and my predictions, I wanted to ask you all a question:
Do you want me to predict every game as I have been, or, pick like five of the best games of the day and predict those? I do the predictions for you (trust me), so I figured I’d ask you. I know it can be all glamorous to go 13-1 in a night or something, but if you’re picking blowouts or games between teams that are, for lack of better words, not up to the same level of competition, what does it really matter?
If you didn’t want them (the daily ones, that is), I wouldn’t do them, you can bet on that. I like doing the section tournament and all that. The ball is in your court (pardon the pun) — whichever you want: all games, some games, or you don’t care for them; that’s what I’ll go with the rest of the way.
I’ll have at least one surprise for you all very soon, and another possible surprise for you by the end of the week. I’m sorry to tease you, but I promise it will be worth it. Just stay tuned and keep checking the blog. I hope to announce the first surprise by the end of the day.
