For all of my loyal blog readers, I know there’s been a long delay since my last blog post, trust me, however, I haven’t been loafing around. Actually, I’ve been quite busy. It’s what I like to call being ‘in the lab’. I’m concocting a special formula. More than one formula, really. Firstly, as team captain, I’m working to further develop our team chemistry, so that my team, Mersin Buyuksehir Bld. can win this Turkish Championship (last year we came close by finishing in 2nd place). Secondly, I’m developing my own game, or maybe I should say transforming it. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been coached, played and developed as a center. I could step out and take bigger posts to the basket as a smaller, quicker 5, but I was known for my inside game. Now, the players are even bigger, the game is changing, and in order for me to maintain my place in the sport I love, I need to transform into a more perimeter playing post. And finally, I’m organizing my plan of attack with my other entrepreneurial endeavors.
I’m also on borrowed time as my fiancé is leaving to play arena football in a few weeks, so I’m trying to savor every moment we have left with him. Once he’s gone, it’s just me and Bre against the world, and I’ll really have my hands full. I tend to be more creative when Rock is gone though, because I think being productive helps the time apart pass more quickly.
Now that BreAzia, my daughter has started hooping, my schedule is really full, so all of you Olympia TV viewers, please bear with me as I figure out a new time to broadcast. The time change also contributes to the dilemma, but I’m sure I’ll figure out something soon.
I’ll get into more details with what I’m doing on and off the court in a future post. For now, I just wanted all of you to know, that I haven’t forgotten about you, I’ve just been ‘in the lab’. Until next time…
