Bonjour mes amis,
As always, I would first like to thank the man upstairs for giving me the strength to live out my dreams.
Overall, life here in France has progressively been getting better day-by-day. I am now extremely comfortable with my teammates, basketball system, language development, living situation, and the whole culture here in Alsace. It has been a total learning experience; nevertheless, I have approached life on and off the court as an opportunity to grow as a professional.
So I have to admit upfront that I have been putting off writing this entry for awhile for the last month has been the most difficult month of my life by far.
For those who do not me well, on September 19th my father passed away. For the past two years my Dad, Herman Curry, had not been in the best health condition. In the last 8 years he suffered two heart attacks and a stroke which made his heart very weak. It was killing me to see the man who I thought was the strongest person I have ever seen struggle so much. Just the simplest things such as walking up the stairs or carrying bags would severely fatigue him. But nonetheless my father fought his hardest all the way up his final breath. This entry is dedicated to him.
Well, I can honestly say I never thought I would be sitting here in Holland starting my own blog. I had never understood the purpose of blogs and definitely did not think they were for me but here we go: The Brandyn Curry Blog
So, I am currently playing for the SPM Shoeters from Den Bosch, Holland in the Top League in Holland, the Eredivisie (Dutch Basketball League). I just recently learned from our Co-Captain that Holland is another name for the Netherlands so the two are interchangeable. My team lost in game 7 of the Finals last year to our rivals the Groningen Flames. Despite that however, we have been picked to win the championship this year so the target is on our back from the start. This is nothing new to me since this is how just about every year was for us at Harvard.
