Sketching plays on napkins, pizza boxes

If you know Al Borges, you'll enjoy reading this.

If you've ever been furious when someone (perhaps even your mother in Borges' case) threw away one of your plays / napkins, you'll enjoy reading this.

Michael Rothstein of "Wolverine Nation" wrote a great article today about Borges' life. The article is filled with stories of Borges drawing up plays on anything...paper, napkins, pizza boxes, etc...

Borges shares his philosophy on scripting plays, having a handful of "bread-and-butter" plays for when you need them and the importance of footwork drills.

If you spend more time than you might want to admit drawing up plays, you definitely want to read this one.
