|Mustangs Take Care of Business With Calvary Christian 78-35
In 37th District Seeding Contest On "Boomer" Night
Four Year Varsity Manager Zach "Boomer" Born Inserted Into Lineup,
Etches a Place In Brossart Varsity Basketball Lore With Made Free-Throw
Coach Mike Code took the opportunity to recognize four year varsity manager Zach Born, on what would have
otherwise been a rather mundane formality 37th District seeding contest with Calvary Christian on Tuesday
evening in the SyDome, inserting "Boomer" into the lineup with the contest well in hand.
Boomer responded by knocking down a free-throw, much to the delight of his teammates, schoolmates, family
and friends, thereby etching his name into the long list of varsity scorers who have worn Brossart uniforms
since 1954. He might also be the answer to some future Brossart Basketball Trivia Question - Name a Brossart
player who scored the only point scored in a varsity quarter???
Zach came out for the freshmen team four years ago, and when cut was asked to join the program as its team
manager. That same year "Boomer" was recruited by Head Coach Mike Code to perform similar services for the
varsity, a duty that he has performed admirably ever since. He also is manager for baseball and football.
He will have three senior banners, a good start to wallpapering his room, or future home.
Recently Kara Wheat ducked into the gym during practice, while baby-sitting two young children while their
mother was upstairs taking a P&G survey. The little boy, who was about four years old, was watching the
activity intently, when he made the statement "That player is a good shooter." I said, "The player on the
wing?" To which he firmly answered, "No, the kid in the blue shorts." The kid in the blue shorts was Boomer,
honing his shooting skills at the far basket, preparing for upcoming IBL competition.
The coaches had kicked this idea around for a couple of weeks, and upon
getting the thumbs up from his Mom and Dad, put the plan into action. In his
pre-game talk Coach Code touched on commitment and dedication, and then
gave Zach a uniform and told him to Suit-Up. To which Boomer went straight
to the Trainer's office to get his ankles taped. Zach has been included on our
KHSAA Eligibility List for just such an occasion.
Coach Code reports that it was a great night all-around, with the Mustangs
winning our 10th Game of the season. We were hoping to pick up a game for
this weekend, but so far that hasn't happened. At present our next engagement
is a week away on Tuesday, February 3rd when we host the
Wonderkind - Austin Crawford, and the Bracken County Polar Bears for a
Stats received. Mustangs led by Jackson Crawford with 18. Spencer Hackworth and Jacob Zai with 11 each.
Blake Saunders put up 8, Hickman 9, Roberts 7, Geiman 5, Zink and Schultz 4 apiece, and Born 1. Calvary was
led by Wade with 16 and Zint with 11.
Mustangs led 30-13, 53-26, 77-34, and won 78-35. We improve to 10-8 on the season.
JVs go to 10-1 with 54-11 romp over Cougars. Bryce Kremer led all scorers with 15, Kory Quitter added 12,
Hickman put up 6, Kelley and Flottman 5 each, Rolf 4, and Ridder 3.
The JVs led 15-4, 27-5, 45-7, and won 54-11.

Will Face Clinton County Friday Morning at 10am
So I go back to Perrone's, my favorite Italian restaurant for dinner Sunday night and
unlike Wednesday night when I first arrived, they were quite busy and I was sitting
side-by-side with other diners. It seems I nearly caused an international incident by
ordering I-talian dressing for my salad. The waiter simply smiled and said "Good
Choice." However, the woman at the table sitting next to me looked over and said, "Sir,
please don't take offense, but I must inform you that the proper pronounciation of the
word Italian is It-alian. Pronouncing the word I-talian as you just did, stamps you as an
outsider and is insulting to this fine It-alian restaurant. I thought that I would mention it to
you so that in the future you might pronounce it correctly and not come off as being
gauche." I replied by informing her that I was an "outsider" from Kentucky, appreciated
being corrected, and meant no disrespect to this fine It-alian eatery. Where else but in
Miami??? Whole different culture, but I love it here.
I traveled down I-95 to the Miami Jai-Alai on Monday. They have been playing the finest
Jai-Alai in the world there for 83 years. The majority of the players still come from the
Basque Region of Spain. Since I didn't know the players I simply played numbers. My
trifecta ticket was my room number #2386, so I played 2 with 3 with 6 and 8. Low and
behold in the final game the 2 wins, and there is a playoff between 3 and 6. If the 3 wins,
I win, and if the 6 wins I lose. In a great playoff volley the 3 prevailed, and they posted a
payoff of $196. I thought that was for a $2 wager, but when I put my $1 ticket in the
machine up came $196. Later that night after returning home and dining on an authentic
Cuban sandwich I went to the dog track and picked nary a winner, but on the way out,
played a four-card bingo game and hit the coverall in 31 numbers, good for just short of
$600. I was very happy with the $600, BUT if it had hit in 30 numbers it was paying
$3,800. At any rate, Monday was a lucky day, paying for all of my non-essential
expenses for the trip (dinners, horses, dogs, etc). Unfortunately all good things must
come to an end and I will be back on a plane heading north on Wednesday and back at
practice on Thursday. It's been a great trip.

Jai-Alai player ever play there in the early
2000s. Middle right, my winning BINGO card.
