When I got there, there were 9, so I got in the game right away, had no time to stretch.  Later more people started showing up.  There were about 15 total after first few games.  Played 2 full court games and went home.  Yea, didn't see any big guy with an outside j :-\

I'm good with 8 AM, if IHO comes out I'll reward him with donuts.   :D

I don't know where anyone plays that early though.

8am is usually when I play anyways (used to start at 7am when the Marines were still around)... that way I have the rest of the day to do stuff... although now... it's rest of the day to recuperate.

You guys sound like young bucks so take it easy on the old fat guy okay?

@Baller: Sounds like you are familiar with Irvine pick-up ball... where do you usually play?

I try to play as much as I can, as often as I can, just anywhere I can join a full court or half court pickup games.  I'm near Heritage and Orchard, so I try to see if there are any pickup games around there.  If not, I go as far as Settler's Park.  But I would love to drive less and save gas and go to the nearby ones....Heritage or Orchard.  But I wanna check out other locations as well even though they might be little bit farther away.  After playing at Beckman High last night, I thought the court was slanted little bit.  I played at Beckman before and my back started to hurt little bit after playing few games.  Beckman location is good, except for the slanted-ness...I don't know if you guys noticed it while playing there.  I also know 2 hidden half courts nearby Beckman, some of u guys might know.  It's within the business complexes.  I used to play over there with my church friends every Thursdays i think....but anyways...

How does 8AM this Sat. (3/10) at Orchard Park sound?  If it is crowded, we can always hop over to nearest Heritage Park since there's 2 full courts there as well. 

Let me know people!  ;)

I usually play volleyball behind the business complexes next to the bball courts you are talking about...

by the way.. where is Orchard Park?  We could definitely meet there, I'll probably just ride my bike there if it's not too far. Look for the lonley soul riding the tandem.

Orchard Park is right across from Heritage Park on Yale and Roosevelt.  Go north on Yale, make a right on Roosevelt, and make the first right into the small street, should be on the right side, street park. 
Hope it's close enough for you Homer!
Check it out... ;)

Orchard Park is fine... it's where I used to play early morning weekend ball until they closed the Marine base.

No one shows up there for full court games (although I think a group starts coming by at around 9:30).

@Homer:

Orchard Park is off of Yale and Roosevelt, just south of Trabuco. It's across from condos and you can see the courts from the curb.

So it is it only going to be 3 of us?

IrvineRealtor has game but he might be busy... anyone else wants to come out? Don't worry... I probably suck compared to the young-uns.

Sounds good.. I could just ride my tandem bike there as it's only 3 miles away.

If we could get a full court game going that would be awesome!

I guess I'll just see you all there Saturday morning.

Oh... I'll be there... if only for the donuts.

No cameras though... I hear a picture of a girthy Austrian is worth some coin in the black market.

Cameras are fine... a picture of a short asian guy is worthless anywhere.  :P

So how do we get USC to show up? Or even qwerty and his bat?

You don't have to be a baller to show up (after all I'll be there)... we can just shoot around and play Horse... or... Unicorn.  8)
