Portland Trail Blazer Nicolas Batum standing hip to shoulder with his biggest fan.
Nicolas Batum has been with the Blazers NBA Basketball Team since 2008. Born in Lisieux France, he has had an impressive career starting in Le Mans in 2006 before the Portland Trail Blazers acquired him.
You can imagine MeMa's surprise when the French Teacher at Franklin High School mentioned that the Batum assembly would be held in the school library. MeMa rushed out and purchased a new Blazer sports shirt just for the occasion. After Batum was finished speaking the attending students where allowed to ask questions, but only in French.
Wow. Quite the size difference. MeMa looks quite happy. Congratulations and have a blessed weekend!ReplyDelete
I find Netball/Basketball a bizarre game. You take a bunch of very tall people who run from end to end (in turn) and put a ball into a net, with the side that put it in first eventually winning (i.e. 157-156 score). Give me Rugby any day; as least you see a good fight.ReplyDelete
Its nice when members of a family can share enthusiasm for the same sport. By the way I own a Volvo too, never thought to name it though.ReplyDelete
Perhaps you will when if yours becomes part of your family for 37 years. I just cant part with it after all this time and she just keeps on going.Delete
