That's the difference

The difference between high school basketball in the US and the rest of the world is not only the higher level of the sport in this country; it's also this:

In Europe, 16-year-old girls playing a final would be happy if even their parents were watching. Media? not even in their wildest dreams. That's pros' territory, exclusively.

Looks like you're working hard Jero, and it shows. As far as the colors on my pictures, well, it's a mix of the canon 5d and florida. You can't beat the light and color down here. I love it. When are you heading back to Columbia?

Nice to see your blog get going. I agree with on this. Our high school sports don't get the media coverage either. That's probably one reason why the U.S. has more journalism jobs than we do....

Wow- that's crazy. I don't remember getting that kind of coverage when I played basketball as a kid in Illinois.
