I AM HEADING up to Wisconsin Friday to work for Gus Macker. I'm getting just a little bit fired up about it.
I worked for Gus for seven years, traveling the Midwest on weekends. Mostly I did the Dream Court and worked with Gus Busters. Every tournament was different and the organizers were great. When I joined the Cheeseburgers in 2010, most of my weekends got sucked up, so I had to bow out of the 3-on-3 road shows.
Gosh ... so many stories and so much fun. Sure, there were some challenges and misunderstandings along the way. I wouldn't trade it for anything.
I have to thank Sheryl for manning the store and keeping dogs happy while I take off to parts unknown. It's a busy weekend in the Q-Town, as usual, with a Blues In The District on Friday and the Knights of Columbus end of summer party going on.
But I have the itch again. Gus has a spot for me this weekend. I'm climbing in the chariot Friday morning and heading off for another adventure.
