OK...You win!!

Emily said...

THAT is awesome. Were you on BYU track or something?

That was the "Club Deseret" basketball team in Montevideo, Uruguay. We had a mission team for two years and played with the big leagues down there. We had a great time playing three nights a week and still doing missionary work full time. We were "homered" nearly every game by the Reffs and had a lot of laughs and we still won our share of games. It was a simi-pro league and the National team was picked from the players and they got third place in the Olympics one of those years I was there. I got in all the games, but was second team for sure. We had some good players. Good time, good memories..

Dad, I swear, I keep learning new cool things about you that I never knew! You are amazing

Haley said...

Yeah, no kidding. That is awesome.

Emily said...

I thought maybe BYU called their track team "Deseret" although those do look like basketball shorts. I figured I would have heard about it by now if you were on the team back in college. Cool story. Amy's right, it's funny the stuff we learn about you still. Father of Mysteries is a very apt title.

I tip my cap to you George, the tightness of those shorts is something I can't come close to beating.

W.V. CAVER. Haha, mom went to San Diego High and they were called the Cavemen. Cavers for short. Just a bit of trivia on the day after her birthday. I might post a few pictures of the ball team in Uruguay for your enlightenment.

I love this! Gosh you were so young and handsome and yes those shorts:) I agree with Amy that it is nice to hear about your experiences as a young man.
