Two Seconds Left, Lyman Holiday Tournament, Dec. 1979

Two Seconds Left, Lyman Holiday Tournament, Dec. 1979

Presho, South Dakota, December 29, 1979

Day 3 of The Lyman Holiday Basketball Tournament, Championship Game, Lyman 53, Sully Buttes 30.

Two seconds are left in the game. I took a picture of the scoreboard and didn't think to try to include all of the players on the floor in the shot. Darn it.

Morgan Hullinger (12), Deron Wendt (23), Clayton Brown (42), Mike Diedrich (40?).

Also take note of the radio play-by-play sports commentator in the upstairs window (zoom in to full size). As you can see by the banner, he is with 1060 AM, KGFX Radio, Pierre, SD.

Why am I including this less-than-stellar shot amongst my Flickr uploads? Context and memories again, I guess.

Side Story 1: You can see the lunch tables folded up in the left corner of the gym. Every day they were (still are?) spread out on the east side of the gym for lunch (oddly enough, I can smell the cafeteria food in my mind even as I am writing this; very strange).

Side Story 2: Behind the tables is the "four sides" (if I remember our nickname for it correctly). It consists of four baskets on a "pole," and during practice every day it was moved to the middle of the floor to provide additional baskets. I believe it was new during my senior year (the previous year). The baskets could be raised or lowered to various heights. I volunteered as one of the assistants to the team during my senior year (just to have an excuse to be part of something fun) and was present at every practice (I was not a very skilled player, but I had become a lot better than certain people gave me credit for). Since I didn't have that much official work to do, I practiced my hook shots continuously for four straight months using the four sides. I started with the baskets set at head level and stood right in front of one of them. I repeatedly dropped the ball into the basket over my head in hook-shot fashion, simply perfecting my aim. As the months went by, I kept raising the basket and moving further away from it. Near the end of the season, I showed off to a couple of skeptics on the team by making two out of three hook shots in the regular basket from the half-court line. I was pretty proud of myself. I am still good at making hook shots to this day, even though they seem to be frowned uoon by most serious players. ;-)

72:365 The food review in my head....

72:365 The food review in my head....

Welcome to lunch time in Kyungwoon Elementary School's cafeteria.

The walls are lined with 1700 hungry kiddies waiting for lunch. The air is thick with a warm spicy smell and bleach. After being served food by masked and gloved women, I fold myself up origami style to just sit at the kiddie sized table. We then eat from these thin metal trays - rice, soup and kimchi. Every day. Rice, soup and kimchi.

Sometimes, I ask the kids what we are going to eat... (hoping they translate the menu I can't). Teacher. Today.... rice. Soup! Teacher... kimchi.

Of course we also get some mysterious main dish too. Somedays we have fins or fish heads in a stew. The fins are literally hanging over the bowl. Other times it might by cow vertebrae. Or pork vertebrae... or chicken vertebrae. Often these are mixed in hot sauce. Or hot soup or hot gloop. Or in bland seaweed slop. I rarely eat the meat portions at school. Just because I don't find them so appetising. I sit amongst my fellow teachers speaking their own language.

I imagine I am Jamie Oliver or Gordon Ramsay doing a school cafeteria review... What on earth is this shit? The same farking spice in every dish? Where is the meat in this stew? It is all bones and gristly shit! How can you expect diners to eat this? Chop those fins off before sending them out... Diners will choke on those long slimy seaweed tendrils - chop them up!

And the review in my head makes me smile..... while I enjoy the rice, soup and kimchi. And the chorus of 1700 hungry kiddies clanging their trays.
