Who Wants to be a Manager?

Kyle Reed // @kylereed


I also remember my basketball manager, Aaron Gabbard. He was the best you could have. Always had the water waiting for you and it was always cold and good. I tried to model his amazing abilities when I was the girls soccer manager my senior year. So, because I am not that good at basketball I have decided to be the basketball manager at school.
Now I know that Tischer is going to make fun of me some way but that is okay, I don’t care. One of the main reasons I have done this is because I get free shoes, free food, and get to miss classes for basketball games. But you would think that being a manager is easy, well let me tell you it is not. I thought that all I would be doing is giving people water and sitting on the bench and enjoying a basketball game. But I was wrong, I am the stats man. Because our school went division 3 we have to have this stat program that is used around all of the NCAA. It is probably one of the most complicated things that I have ever seen. You have to enter in three things just to say that a player made a shot. We had a practice game this Saturday, it was practice for the players and practice for me. It was crazy. I probably looked up from the computer once. I was constantly having to look back at the directions and try to figure out what was going on. The thing is so complicated you have to have two people run it. One is a spotter and one enters into the computer. So needless to say that I will get some free shoes and some free food I will have a very hard job. We will see what happens. Our first game is next Thursday against Johnny T’s Alma Mater Truman State, we are going to get killed.

    Kyle, as a Truman alum from the Class of ’98, I can say with all honestly don’t give up on your team just yet… you guys can’t possibly be *that* bad.

    Why would I make fun of you. Kyle, I like you…no…I really like you. “Like” as in more than just friends.

    Maybe you should talk to Adam about these feelings, I think he is going through the same things.

  • Adam

    no no no no. I gave you the hand remember when you tried hitting on me.

    Kyle– let me say I feel your pain because I have done those kind of systems before, for MoBap, LCC and SLCC. They would change programs it seemed like every year and I always was learning a new one. I finally gave up. :-)
