  1. Oh, Kevin! Your story brought back memories!

    I started freshman year in high school as “the new kid”. I knew no one and the high school was small so most of the students had known each other forever.

    One day in English class, a popular kid said I should play football.

    I was so overjoyed that someone spoke to me—a popular kid, even—that I said yes.

    To this day, I know nothing about sports. When people start talking about sports, I hear the teachers in Peanuts cartoons. And I certainly nothing about football, but the popular kid spoke to me!!!

    I went to the next practice and was given gear that stank of old sweat and hurt where the edges dug in my flesh. I went to the field with the other players and got knocked around. A lot. And then the grueling calisthenics. And then back to the locker room and aching and being filthy and I wondered what the fuck was I thinking?

    I quit the next day and a short time later I found the drama kids and the chorus kids and the band kids and I did OK.

    So, that was my one day on the football team in high school!
