Reasons MASS High School Hoops Rule Part I. Moses Parting the Red Sea
You gotta love MASS high school hoops, in a myspace, myface, 4 square, fake world, fake currency, atrificial life, cpu, cpu, cpu world, kids still come out. This is Lawrence Central, in our project the mighty Minutemen went down to Lawrence Catholic in front of an equally creative crowd.
One of our favorite cuts that Keebs and I spoke about long before we shot or should I say Carmine and or Keebs shot even 1 practice was the newspapers in the crowd. LHS, a forever packed gym from the 50's up until Bob was forced out in 2008 employed some of the more creative crowds in the rowdy rowdy eastern MA high school hoops scene. The kids would all rip out Globe sports sections and put them smack dab in front of their face while the visitors starting lineup was announced.
Anyway this is a gem, I'd post the papers in lexington from the 80's but we need to hold on to some gems, right? otherwise you'd never see the film, holla! This was a nationally featured shot today, love to see eastern MA especially the former arson capitol of America lawrence getting some shine. Big up's Term and Slain, Preem and the Dream Team (us.)
This is dope, long live high school hoops and school pride.
Happy Hump Day.
Chucky P Here's a picture a classic mis print of Lloyd "Fudge" Mumford for all of you die hard lexington Hoop fans. This is the only picture in the world that shows Lloyd playing varisty rocking a uniform that didn't wear #11. Classic. If it was a trading card in my world it would be worth millions.
