"We Got 15"







Most of the parents in the stands this morning will remember Number 1 going to the free throw line with about a minute to go in a tied ballgame and calmly, confidently sinking them both for the win. I almost exploded with pride and even teared up a little when the coach hoisted him up in post-game celebration.

But I'm probably the only one who will remember the next game. Number 2's team lost 30-something to 15 and he didn't score a single basket. When it was over, he rushed off the court with the enthusiasm of any Final Four champion. As we left the gym, he proudly kept repeating to everyone and no one in particular, "We got 15! Did you see we got 15!?!"



Another day, another story,
