Warning: Sportswriter attempting to hoop it up

Attention hecklers: this reporter will be in action this evening with The Buffalo News team during the Gus Macker's corporate challenge event downtown.

At 6:20 p.m., we take on West Herr Honda. Guys (and a girl -- every team needs to have one) who sell cars/work on cars vs. guys and a girl who work at a newspaper/Web site. Tough to handicap these matchups. Hopefully the opponents don't have anyone on their roster that we at The News named to an All-Western New York team.

The winner will likely have their hands full -- the other side of our bracket has Coca-Cola (fairly large company there) and Athleticare (oh great, probably former players-turned-trainers). Like the Macker itself, it's double-elimination. Hopefully we're playing for longer than two games (unlike last year's News team, which I can claim no responsibility for).

I'll have a full report on how the ball bounced later on.

I'm hoping to check out some of the action on Saturday -- I'm usually out of town so I haven't been able to get my Macker on in recent years. Certainly a great festival of hoops.

You'll have to excuse me now as I go through my intense pregame routine.
