The Bellingham SLAM Basketball Team are the winners!

Friday, July 18th, 2008

Tonight we had a great time cheering on our local minor league basketball team, The Bellingham SLAM, as they battled The Elkhart Express for the International Basketball League championship. Initially, the SLAM seemed intimidated by the Eastern Division champs, but, after an exciting and hard-fought game, our guys claimed the victory, with a final score of 118 to 111.

Most Valuable Player is currently a toss-up between two of our favorite players, Paul Hafford and Tyler Amaya. Our SLAM coach is Rob Ridnour, father of Luke Ridnour of the NBA’s Seattle SuperSonics.
