In the spirit of March Madness and the Final Four on Saturday, I decided to share a photo of the basketball hoop I grew up with as a farmer’s kid in Eastern Montana. I remember watching plenty of basketball games and then taking my joy or frustration out on this hoop hanging from the barn. I shot hoops on this for hours it seems like. It was a good set up, hooked up to the side of our family’s barn on our farm where my parents still farm and ranch. There was always beautiful outdoor pictures everywhere and it was a great place to grow up with seemingly endless lands to explore on foot or as in my case on a four-wheeler. I look forward to going back and visiting the place in July.
