I am 5' 5 1/2" (Doctor claims I'm not 5'6". Hmph)...125 lbs...and I play basketball with men weighing 150 lbs and more on a weekly basis. Yess...everyone is bigger than me. Keep this tidbit in mind as the blogpost continues.
Lately, I've noticed lately how funny the male ego is on the basketball court. I've heard the dumbest arguments. But I find comedy in the male ego in regards to me. Now, I've told you my size...which leads to guys getting offended when I play D on them. I've heard a guy go "Are you serious?" In his eyes, if I'm playing defense on him, it means that I think I can take him...which means I don't think he's that good.
This is when my ego kicks in. Now, because you don't think I "deserve" to play D on you, I gotta 1) Prove to myself that I can stick you; 2) Light that auss up when I get the ball.
You'd be amazed by all the ish talked to me on the court. But when I say something back, it's "Oh, you're talking ish?" You damn right I am...and I'm gonna try my damnedest to back it up, too.
Ego...such a funny thing.
K to the...
