I lost my dignity to some brats

As of about one hour ago myself and four other friends decided to go down to the gym on mountain view road. So we were shooting some hoops for about half an hour and my friend feeling very confident in his skill decided to ask some public school elementary kids if they wanted to play a game of basketball. They out numbered us probably by two. They declined at frist but about five minutes later they came back and accepted. Well at first we were thinking that we would destroy them. But is was just like the movies where the underdog team sucks so bad that they lose to to the girl scouts team. They had the ball first and within the first 10 seconds they made their first two points. It didn't get any better for us later. We got our butts handed to us. We like to blame it on the fact that we were out numbered and they were kind of playing like a brats grabbing the balls from our hands. But these kids know how to shoot. And we weren't at the top of our shooting game. The game ended probably something like 16-6 the Brats. But I probably lost the least amount of dignity out of my friends. As in I was the only one who made the three shots.

Its embarassing, but in the end I say to myself, "sure they can beat me at basketball, but I can still beat them up". When walking away with my head hung in shame, I still congragulated them on a good game. of course Ambrose bierce's definition for congragulations is, "-The civilty of envy"

Public school kids, grow up in a competitive environment and thus end up better than the average joe at most things, because they fight to become the best at pretty much everything other than academics. So you can pride yourself on your education being from private schools, but unless you start at an early age you wont be able to compete physically with public schoolers. Unless your name is Jason.

makes sense. Thats probably why every kid at the skate park is better than me at skate boarding. oh well, I will stick piano drums and unicycling.

Ty Stephenson?

I bet he could take you if you were his age.

I actually knew one of the kids and it wasn't Ty Stephenson. I don't think I know this Ty Stephenson.

That was more a question for Jason. Ty Stephenson is Coach Stephenson's (or is it Stevenson) son. He's been at private schools his whole life, but I'd bet he'd be able to take Jason on were they the same age.

In short, I was just teasing Jason.
