As kids we were always told to get outside and play , get away from the television screen.
Our folks were always complaining that we will have square eyes and big fat rear ends, get off that couch and get some exercise in the fresh air.
What is the point of air conditioning the basketball courts then, just ask?
It really doesn’t make sense just canned air being piped into your lungs from those alien looking air ducts. But it certainly does promote that the Texas basketball sport can be played by the youths still in school all year round. Even if it is 100 degrees outside, your kids can run around the court having fun and not keel over from heat exhaustion.
No matter the weather , there is no excuse for the teenagers of all ages to be watching tv or hanging on the street corner. Let the sport of basketball teach them the life lessons you don’t have time to teach them ,as you are busy slaving away at a job to pay for everything they will need.
Those life skills include things like teamwork , friendship, love , health , pride , passion and commitment.
Rather get the basketball courts fitted out with full quality heating ventilation and air conditioning systems for their enjoyment.
Imagine there is a forecast for ice and sleet , the kids and in fact you can dress in the latest design basketball togs and play a bit of one on one , two on two or full team games at your local court that is comfortably warm.
You don’t have to worry about getting frost bite in winter and avoid the pins and needles or finger amputation, or blowing mist clouds.
In summer you and your mates can get out of the sun and avoid that horrid sunglasses tan , or as I like to call it the Rudolph red nose.
This way you also don’t need to apply suntan lotion that will run into your eyes and help your opponents get the upper hands; nor do you need to smell like a pina colada. In the cooler months you don’t need big thick jackets and gloves.
