On September 18, the SQ prison yard was shining bright with the sun and its resident athletes at 10 a.m. Games were happening in just about every corner and on every field of play. There was a hardcore scrimmage game of basketball underway and the guys were balling hard. That game ended in a close score with one team winning 62-60.
On the other end of the yard, since there was no baseball game going on the baseball field, a competitive game of flag football was going down. The guys were making plays and scores while dirt from the field mushroomed in the air, giving the guys nostril fills. Nevertheless, that did not stop the game, but it may have given one team the edge to beat out the other.
On the tennis court, there were balls flying across the net and guys whacking the balls with their rackets. Tennis shoes screeched and beads of sweat dripped down the faces of the tired residents.
The running club participants were out on the track gearing up for the next running competition. They stretched and pulled and ran the track with focus.
At the gym’s back wall a handball enthusiast was slap-ping the tiny rubber ball against the wall, and you could hear the loud smack echoing down the alley when it hit.
