The basketball game was fun until the AC broke down

My son isn’t great at basketball, but he really tries hard.

  • He likes to play basketball.

We have a hoop in the backyard and every day after school he hangs out in the yard playing ball with his friends. He works on his jump shot and free throws almost every single day, too. Unfortunately, my son is only 5’4 and really doesn’t have the same height as some of the other players that aren’t as naturally gifted as him. He doesn’t usually start in very many games. He does get plenty of playing time, but there are five guys that start before my son gets a chance. One of those kids was sick with influenza so my son started the game last tuesday. It was an away match with one of the local rivals. I called my wife at work and she agreed to meet me at the office so we could go to the game together. If Jack was going to start, we wanted to be there to cheer him on. It was a warm and humid day, but the air conditioning in the gym was working just fine. Throughout the first and second period, temperatures in the gym were cool and comfortable. Unfortunately, that did not continue after the second period. The air conditioner broke down and stopped working. The coaches even thought about calling the game early because of the AC problems, but the kids wanted to stick it out so there was a definitive winner of the very important seasonal game. I think those kids should have all gotten trophies for playing in the heat.
