WOW Tony nice words!!!! Someone else said “who wants a Riverdale basket anyway”? I do, I do. Some say they don’t catch well but I believe they are responsible for producing some of the best players in the state, just because they make you put well. If you don’t hit them just right they won’t stick. Sometimes even if you hit them perfect they will bounce out, but that just makes you better. They force you to put well. Some of the Riverdale hommies are the best players (Including the person that said that) in the Mountain region for that reason. These baskets also have massive sentimental value for those of us that have been here from the beginning, helped build, and maintain them. You say who wants a Riverdale basket anyway? I do, I do!!

It’s too bad a couple of people can ruin things for hundreds if not thousands of people. I don’t see how they can live with themselves. Maybe they need a brain transplant or they simply don’t have one.
