#59 The Champion

Tonight’s game had a new player. The visiting team was surprised because they hadn’t seen him during any of the other games that season. It was close and the game looked like it would go into overtime.

The referee blew his whistle and the new boy came forward for a foul shot. He scored and the home team had the lead.

A few minutes later the buzzer announced the home teams’ victory. They had won their 1st championship.

The boy paused the tape. “See Dad, That’s why I call you a champion!”

He looked at his wheelchair and nodded wistfully.
