  • Legend shoots lights out against Chatfield boys

    LITTLETON — Sometimes the shots just don’t fall the way a team wants them to.

    On Jan. 8 against Legend on its own home court, Chatfield couldn’t hit its shots while at times it seemed like the Titans couldn’t miss. The Chargers fell 78-36.

    “They shot the ball really well, and they just came out with more intensity than we did,” sophomore Nate Jacobson said. “It shows that we’ve got to come out with more intensity, we’ve got to come out with more confidence.”

    I have a sort of mancave which looks a bit like a museum. In it are so many things that remind me of people, places and things that have been important to me. At the end of the bar is a collection of autographed baseballs and a little clicker which umpires use to keep track of balls, strikes and outs. Someone asked me what it was, and the question brought back memories of my first job. At about 13 or so I became an umpire, calling games for younger boys.
