Hola,

As the weather gets cooler, I was wondering if anyone would like to start playing Basketball on the weekends, maybe at a set time on Saturdays. There is a nice court around Plaza Republica Dominicana (metro Colombia). Shoot me an email if you are interested.

Best Regards
Joe

Hi jmp110372!! Where in Spain are you hoping to play? I'm not familiar with Plaza Republica Dominicana. Is this in Barcelona? Madrid? Please remember to put the city location in your subject line so we all know to where you are referring. Thanks!

Sorry about that.

Plaza Republica Dominicana (or Dominicana Republica) is located in Madrid at Metro Colombia (Linea 9 between stops Concha Espina and Pio XII). It is also located next to Auto Pista M30 (I am not sure of the exit).

12 is the earlier i wake up on Saturdays. It's ok.

If it were on sundays, it would be better for me in the afternoon. This is also a good time for me in Saturdays. And there are the afternoons/evenings the weekdays...

jmp110372: Since I won't be there to police the court, here are two things to do:

1) Make sure the locals take their obligatory smoke break about 30 minutes into your game. Dunks and Ducados...what could be better!?! :p

2) Enjoy...bball in Spain brings back a flood of memories, especially that extra-step-traveling thing that you can get away with in Europe...nothing a good hard foul doesn't cure though. heh heh heh...

Have fun!

Good to hear from you, Cali.

But, we tend to believe that the ones who do travelling are the NBA payers, who hold the ball too much in their hands when dribbling, walking in the meantime!

Noon on Saturdays eh? I'm moving to Madrid for a year on the 25th (sept) and would LOVE to play some ball. If your still playing later in the month say so and I'll find it. Don't know about the Knicks though. Being from Baltimore I've been long taught that NY is inherently evil (at least the Yankees) :-)

We (Igancio and I) played last Saturday at noon and ran in a 5 on 5 for a couple of hours. It was fun, and as usual, the young ones ran up and down the court while I tried to catch up (I am a very old 28 years old).

The competition was good and we plan on doing this every Saturday. If anyone wants to play just shoot me an email. I will even look past if you are from Baltimore and want to play.

When I hear the word "basketball," my face lights up with joy. I will be coming to Madrid on the 29th of September and would love to play some ball. The one thing that I worried most about leaving the states is not being able to play basketball any more.

But I don't know if I will be allowed to play. I'm from Los Angeles so you know what team I root for. (It's not the Clippers either.)

See u on the courts,
Marcel
