March Madness: A Dream is Born

I’ve been saving this video for the commencement of March Madness, it’s a holiday in itself in these parts.. Isaac is developing a love for the game, even at 2.  He LOVES to shoot hoops and specializes in last second prayers.  =)  We’re first time parents so we’re not sure if this is "normal" for his age, but it’s sure a crowd pleaser!

Basketball in Indiana is more than a "game" it’s a dream…

    THAT’S AWESOME!!! Isaac is definitely more advanced than most “young” players I’ve seen [and we’ve spent the last three months at my gym where all aged kiddies work on the hoop skills!].

    I’m pretty bias [played for six years during in high and high school] but I’d say encourage that when you can – Isaac ROCKS!

    And basketball is an AWESOME sport. Teamwork, personal bests, exercise, coordination, working together, standing apart, aerobic components, focus and agility – really a great sport for kids. But like I said, I’m a tad bias!

    Love the video! Go Isaac – GO!!

    Sorry, my computer said I’d spelled “jr” wrong, as in “jr high” and in a hurry I changed it. Played in Junior high and highschool.

    I can see it now. Isaac in red and white down in Bloomington, with this huge crowd cheering him on. That video was precious. Could I interest him in wearing orange and blue?????

    I think your other little shooter is more the norm for an early two year old. I think Isaac really does have some natural talent with that ball…and as a fellow Hoosier, I say All Right!
