Summer Days

Technically, summer is still more than a month away, but after temps in the 80s most of the week, our thoughts (albeit prematurely) turned to ways of enjoying those long-daylight days of May June, July and August.

And the more we thought about it, the more we thought, "What could be more fun this summer than playing miniature golf?" (Apart from watching the Mystics, of course!)

We confess that while one of us actually owns a set of clubs and occasionally hits a bucket or two at the range, neither of the BasketCases could truly be described as a "golfer." But mention miniature golf to us . . . and we are there!

And now, thanks to the Maryland Rebounders, we -- and you -- have the chance to compare our putt-putt skills with those of some true athletes. In a game of H-O-R-S-E against Marissa, Lang or even Coach B, we're guessing Vegas would be offering 1,000,000 to 1 odds against the BCs. But mini golf is the great equalizer! We're ready to take on all comers. There are no windmills (just tall post players) to knock away shots in the WNBA. But in mini golf, that's an everyday, every hour, every minute occurrence. So to say we are looking forward to playing the same course, on the same day, under the same conditions with Lang, Riss, Coach B and other members of the Terps & Mystics glitterati, well, that would be an understatement.

In other words, yes, we are definitely looking forward to the Rebounders' first annual mini-golf outing on June 20th, at the Columbia Sports Park in Columbia, Maryland, to benefit the Maryland Women's Basketball program. And we hope that Maryland -- and Mystics -- fans alike will join us in supporting this cause -- even if you're not as big a fan of the mini version of the golf game as we are. One thing we guarantee . . . it will be fun.

Isn't that what the summer is for? F-U-N.

You can find the details for signing up for your tee time on the Rebounders site, here. You do not need to be a member of the Rebounders to participate; everyone is welcome!

Go Mystics! Go Terps! Go Rebounders Mini Golf!
