Someone asked a great question during the season and that's "What makes a great AAU Bingo?" So after pondering, here's are criteria I would use.
- It has to be unique to AAU
- It has to something that represents what is bad about the system but not something that happens all the time (e.g. parents or coaches being fools)
- It helps if its funny
- Photographic evidence takes it to another level.
So with that in mind, let's count down the best AAU Bingo tweets of the 2013 AAU season.
- Coaches packet with "Good" in the GPA column. Another one with GED in the GPA column.
- Referee badgers player during the game and then tries to recruit the player for his AAU team after the game.
- Coach answers phone on the bench during a timeout from a person in front row of the same game.
- Coach spends 3 minutes cleaning his Jordan's after they were stepped on in a timeout.
- Coach gets tossed and then changes into his referee's uniform to work next game 3 courts over.
- PA system announces a car needs to be moved and a head coach leaves his bench to go move it.

Playing a 10th grade team... And the post player had an ankle bracelet. The bad kind, like house arrest. #AAUBingo pic.twitter.com/lHV3byxlf9#1) Planking referee
