Recently, the following incident occurred at our older son Benjamin's basketball practice.
Put a group of fifth grader's in a room or gym for an hour and entertainment is guaranteed.
Also, Joey Basketball is one of Benjamin's aggressive teammates.
JOEY BASKETBALL: Coach my elbow! Ouch, ouch, ouch!!!
Tears stream down Joey's cheeks.
COACH: Joey, calm down! Can you move it? Ok, good. What happened?
Joey wipes the tears from his face with his non-injured arm, and goes back to rubbing his elbow.
JOEY BASKETBALL: Well, I was trying to get that last rebound and I slammed my elbow hard! It went right into Benjamin's face! Ouch, ouch ouch!
Frowning, coach looks at Benjamin--he is rubbing a red mark on his forehead and smiling.
COACH: Good gosh Joey! Get back out there! Ball in!
I knew Benjamin having younger siblings who act like he is a human trampoline and daily pummel him would pay off with toughness.
Bring it on Joey!
