Bounces and buckets — Nerves , and reading regulations with statutes

Hi! Here’s another bounce and bucket. Today’s random $0.02, aka the bounce, is nerves; and bucket is reading Regulations! What fun! Game 5, scores tied, Dame Lillard (Portland vs OKC) casually dribbles over half court – only just. Stares down the defender. And with 2 seconds left, puts up an outrageously long 3. Drains it.Continue reading “Bounces and buckets — Nerves , and reading regulations with statutes”

Bounces and buckets – Elena Delle Donne and conflicting statutes

Today’s bounce – my $0.02 on a basketball related topic – is Elena. She is the newest member of the 50-40-90 club and the first in the WNBA to do it.

But then I checked my phone to make sure, and the crushing truth of being on the underside of the mid-week hump dawned on me. Even coffee hasContinue reading “Bounces and buckets — what day is it and can a contract be terminated?”

Bounces and buckets — Rest and strange contracts

Hi there! Welcome to bounces and buckets. Bounces — my $0.02 on what is happening in my brain. Sometimes up, sometimes down. Buckets — my $0.02 on a legal concept. Hopefully swishing through with nothing but net. I came across an article saying that Lebron James gets 8 to 10 hours sleep a night. Wowsers.Continue reading “Bounces and buckets — Rest and strange contracts”
