Turkey and basketball are kling. This is a great time of year.

The Quincy Notre Dame Thanksgiving Tournament is under way. The Pittsfield Turkey Tournament is underway. The Quincy High School Blue Devil Thanksgiving Tournament is coming up over Thanksgiving. And don't forget the girls. Their season is underway, as well.

It is a long season. There will be trying times. Some of the road trips are very long making you very tired but somehow, as a player, you get pumped up. The coaches get on you, but keep in mind, he or she is teaching you so you will be better as the long season grinds on.

Again, It is great to see basketball back. Everyone team is at the same level until the season begins. Then watch out for the fun to begin. Did I say this yet? This is a great time of year.
