I was on the basketball team in high school. I enjoyed playing the game, but I was horrible at it. Basically, I am just not that coordinated, so I rode the bench for most of the games.
I don’t remember who we were playing, but it was the forth quarter and my team was dominating. The coach decided to let me play, since there was no way I could mess up the game.
I felt proud and excited at the same time. I jumped off the bench and started running onto the court. In the rush, I managed to trip over my own feet and fall on my face in front of a couple hundred people.
I was completely embarrassed. I just wanted to crawl into a hole and disappear.
