Repressed Memory from High School: Wearing Baseball Stirrups Playing Basketball

In high school, playing basketball for Chisholm High, we had to wear baseball stirrups (leggings). See the above picture. As you can see, these are listed on amazon as “Baseball Stirrups

See you might be fooled when looking at the first picture that these are socks, but alas, they are stirrups. What a PITA. Uncomfortable, pulled up to the knee, just bad all around. You can see the picture above the player has spandex below his shorts. Why? Because Chisholm Basketball shorts are still 80′s style. Look at the player behind him, they are below the knee!

Anyway’s, this is a post about Chisholm Basketball, since they made it to state this year, first time since 95, when I was on the team, wearing baseball stirrups on the court. Good Luck Bluestreaks.. :)
