School Yard Tales: Warming Up the Court for The Rockets!

Our little school got lucky one day. We went to see The Rockets play.

John Lucas was the guy who played in the 8Os. He’s the Rocket who was surely one of the greatest!

NBA caliber, coaching well, back when the Rockets started casting their spell.


We played some ball, and ran the field; Lucas kept at us till we were almost skilled.

He put us through a bit of a workout. By the time it was over we were ready for a bailout.

We got in groups, and shot some hoops. Watched a few, botched some too.


Then a lady gave us a great snack. She’s quite a gal–she was really our pal.

She helped us get the feel of The Rockets. We even got some autographs in our pockets.

We really had such a good time the first day, we came back again to see the rest of them play.



We’ll tell all our friends, and to your games we’ll come back:-)
