poolsideJay_finalWhile many of us are forced to layer up or hoop indoors during these frosty days of ’09, Jay is soaking up the 80+ degree weather out in beautiful California.  He just hit me up with this photo of him pool side out there in Venice.  I see Hooptainers need to ball in the best of weather conditions.  While we may envy him for the moment, Jay will be experiencing the frigid weather when he visits New York next month to take part in the 2nd annual Ice Ball competition.

Ice Ball is a 3 on 3 competition, consisting of four select teams, to play outdoors in the middle of Winter in New York City.  For more information about Ice Ball and how you can watch or participate, check out the official Ice Ball website.
