Years ago when I was coaching....I once overhead a mother say to a lady at the check out counter of her son: "Well they lost their sectional game this week and his girlfriend broke up with him."
I had empathy for ...well for all of them.....and some thoughts....
“It seems a lot happened in the last two and one half months of my senior year in high school.”
“On the saddest of notes for me was early in April when Sharon told me, and I remember her exact words."
These were quotes from the book Growing Up in Indiana—The Culture & Hoosier Hysteria Revisited by Dr. Norman Jones written in 2005 describing his life and times in the 1950s’ growing up in Indiana.
Hum… I wonder how many Indiana school boys had a similar experience in their lives. A two time loser, one in love the other in high school basketball.
Have you ever been there? Heard these words said: “I think best you find someone else.”
Both can hurt……… losing at basketball (a sectional) and losing at love.
