The Czar's 2009-2010 Season Totals

One of the questions I get asked often when I'm out and about doing this is how many games and teams I've seen, how many places I've been, etc etc so I decided to track it. A game counts as seen if I see at least half of the game time go off the clock. These counts represent varsity games only unless otherwise noted. During the season, I try to update this daily, but at a minimum I have it updated on Sundays.

New this season, I'll also be counting everything I see between August 1st, 2009 and July 31, 2010 (inclusive). That includes fall leagues, AAU tournaments, the all-star game and HS tournaments during the summer.

So without further delay, The Czar's 2009-2010 totals
