(and other stuff)
The following is a compendium from the Trumm files of the girls’ basketball games against Little Falls (Cards in home black) on January 21 and at Detroit Lakes (Cards in visitor white) on January 22. We have previously chronicled the results of both games. This will mostly be a photo essay (with some captions) of those games, as well as stuff from the copious Obert archives.
Girls just wanna have fun:
Pre-game warm-ups (Alexandria Aces?):

[The suspects somehow managed to elude security and obtained access without passing through the full body scanner. Nelson, fully aware of his culpability, is rumored to be exiting the state anon.]
[This is offered as an unnecessary break from the Trumm files, which will follow-on.] Well, it is a family-oriented blog dedicated to sports and the arts. Having been accomplished at neither, I will introduce family here. Little Brother Cam, already a diplomaed alumnus of the University of South Carolina, has decided to re-enter college at the ripe young age of 56. Specifically, Century College in the Cities. Good for him, we say. Long past his athletic prime, we feature him here at a lithe 6’3″ going in for a dunk (yes, he could) at Donaldson Run Park in Arlington, Virginia (in keeping with blog traditions, he was a Cardinal until the 5th-grade). Now, in his own words, he follows his son, Michael John, into the thespian arts (Michael shown here (trenchcoat on the left) as Nick Tickle, an Irondale High School production).
“Yippee! I got notified this morning by the director that I made it past the first audition and have been asked to come back Saturday for another round of reading. Now, I’m getting a little nervous! The Century College drama department is doing the stage production of Chekhov’s The Seagull. I hope I can secure the role of Dorn, the retired Doctor. I guess my biggest worry is, what if I get chosen? Oh well, I hope it works. I’ll be proud to follow in my son’s footsteps in the world of the stage! Wish me luck!!!! Thanks.”
