This basketball season has been particularly enjoyable for Steel. Without the rigorous wrestling schedule, he's been able to go to most of the high school basketball games and cheer for his classmates. Tonight, CCHS claimed the WAC League Championship with their defeat against Hilmar. (It's always a good day when we beat Hilmar... at ANYTHING!) I was across the gym taking pictures when Steel walked into the game. The kids in the Central fan section immediately got to their feet and applauded his arrival. It was great. They had been pretty quiet up to that point and it was obvious they were waiting for the leader of the pack.
