Shooting the Rock in Iraq

I loved this piece at True Hoops about pick-up basketball games played by U.S. troops in Iraq. It's not sexy, or dramatic, but I love the attention to detail and the love of the game - the idea that the troops built the backboard themselves, and that the rim was made, not bought, and the fact that we learn what pick-up rules they play under. Good stuff.

Until Whenever
