Today is the day. My basketball game starts at 7:00 p.m. I'm really nervous! That must be a shocker because some people say that when I get on the court I don't look nervous. As I'm typing, my heart is beating a little too fast. If we win, we advance on, but if we lose thats the end of the season for us. Thats what I'm mostly afraid of. Losing. This is a lot coming from a girl who plays on a winning team. I sometimes put myself in someone else's shoes and I think to myself how they must feel to lose, but I cannot worry about that now. I need to focus on beating this team. I HAVE to. My teammates are like family to me. We share laughs and argue over the silliest things. Losing today would mean not playing with my family. I'm hoping for the best tonight since I heard a lot of people are coming to watch us today. Wish me luck because quite frankly, I'm going to need it.

  1. I hope you won. Either way, you learned an important lesson: there is no I in team. Apply this to all areas of your life. I think team sports are really great for building character. You learn how to handle loss. You learn that winning in itself is empty without sharing the joy with your team mates. I know that you don't follow the lakers but they were down 25 against the pelicans and came back to win 102 to 108. Kobe said it cemented a game like that cemented the bond between the team. They all looked at each other differently after that one game.
