I announced my last boys basketball game for the year last night and when I looked at the visitor's score book the 2nd name listed was M. Nash. I kind of chuckled and when I asked their team manager for first names so I could announce them during the game he said the name and it was my name. Deja Vu!
A few minutes later I was handed the starting line up cards and I WAS STARTING! When I announce line ups I announce the visitors to the Top Gun Theme song so it went something like this: Now starting for the Texans, playing post, 6'3" Junior, number 4, M _ _ _ NASH! The crowd went wild. Really only the hand full of visitors clapped. I actually hesitated when announcing the next name. It felt kind of surreal.
During the game M _ _ _ Nash only scored 7 points, but he played most of the game. I had a side wager with the guy running the clock that I would score 10 points.
Have you ever heard your name out somewhere else?
