As can be seen from the gap between the dates of our last blog post and now, we have been on a slight hiatus. During that time we watched a lot of playoff and NBA Finals basketball (congrats to the LA Lakers) and we even watched some WNBA basketball. We also took the time to rethink the direction in which we want to grow our blog.


As many people visit our website, they will notice that we are mainly about Eastern Shore basketball. Well, if you aren’t familiar with the Eastern Shore in some way, you will quickly go in another direction. Many people may read our blog and notice that we rarely discuss the Eastern Shore in many of our blog posts.


Moving forward our goal is to speak more about basketball on the Eastern Shore while still writing about current stories and events in the basketball world – and of course, to write more in general!


But we want to stress that while we represent and want to bring more exposure to Eastern Shore basketball, that is not all that we are about.


We love the game of basketball and we feel that the sport can help to teach important principles and life concepts that go beyond the hardwood, asphalt, or dirt courts where the game is played. We also feel that basketball can help to cure some of the social ills that plague the world today.


Ultimately, we have an intense passion for the sport of basketball and we want to touch and affect as many lives as we can through the game that we love and that goal extends far beyond the Eastern Shore. If you share the same goal and passion for the sport, feel free to let us know. We would love to hear from you!
